A long path consisting of parts of the ancient road system of north eastern Italy and leading from Triveneto across the Padana Plain
The Romea Strata is a long trail formed by the stretches of the ancient road system of northeast Italy. Sections include the Allemagna, Aquileiense, Annia, Postumia, Porciliana, Vicetia, Flavia, Nonantolana-Pistoiese roads, which, after reaching Emilia-Romagna, join the Nonantolana-Longobarda and, cutting across the Po Valley, arrive in the Tuscan town of Fucecchio, where the Romea Strata joins the Francigena.
The intertwining of the nine sections also defines the five main routes that allow travellers from the Brenner Pass or the Eastern borders of the Triveneto to enter Italy and to reach cities such as Aquileia, Padua, Verona, Vicenza and Modena.
One of the distinguishing features of the Way is the opportunity of visiting two symbols of Catholic Christianity. The burial places of two of the four evangelists: St. Mark, in the Basilica San Marco in Venice and St. Luke, in the Basilica of Santa Giustina in Padua.
The website has detailed information about the routes and on the spiritual nature of the pilgrimages of the Way.
