Via Egnatia

The Egnatia Way, that run through the Balkans from the Adriatic coast to the Dardanelles, was one of the most important communication routes of the Roman world. Paul probably traveled this road on both his second and third missionary journeys, as he traveled between Philippi and Thessalonica.
