Ancient Roman Road – Via Egnatia

Ancient Roman Road
Via Egnatia

After the conquest of Macedonia by the Romans (168 B.C.), Veria developed into a great administrative, spiritual and financial centre. The connection between Egnatia Road and the city of Veria by a paved road dating back to the 2nd century, part of which has been found and is exposed in the centre of the city, along Mitropoleos Street, contributed a great deal to this development.
