A Roman Road without Borders.

The approximately 400 km long road follows the course of the old Via Romana, which connected the Roman legionnaire’s camp Vindonissa (Windisch, canton Aargau, Switzerland),  with the settlement Grinario (Köngen near Stuttgart in Germany).

This road is also designated by the Tabula Peutingeriana, a Roman road map. The original map is lost, but a medieval copy of it shows the road.
