#414 of 526 in Historic Sites in Rome
The Via Salaria was an ancient Roman road in Italy.It eventually ran from Rome (from Porta Salaria of the Aurelian Walls) to Castrum Truentinum (Porto d'Ascoli) on the Adriatic coast, a distance of 242 km. The road also passed through Reate (Rieti) and Asculum (Ascoli Piceno). The Via Salaria owes its name to the Latin word for "salt", since it was the route by which the Sabines came to fetch salt from the marshes at the mouth of the Tiber, one of many ancient salt roads in Europe. Some historians consider the Salaria and the trade in salt to have been the origin of the settlement of Rome. Some remains still exist of the mountain sections of the road.Strada statale 4 Via Salaria (SS4) is the modern state highway that maintains the old road's name and runs from Rome to the Adriatic sea.Roman bridgesFor an overview of the location of Roman bridges, see List of Roman bridges. There are the remains of several Roman bridges along the road, including the Ponte del Gran Caso, Ponte della Scutella, Ponte d’Arli, Ponte di Quintodecimo, Ponte Romano (Acquasanta), Ponte Salario and Ponte Sambuco.

  • .. traffic has been replaced over the centuries. Except the final part (Salary quarter) is not noteworthy. Too bad because this important consular route could be cleaner and valued by the city. Old speeches.

  • It is one of the oldest in Rome, just think that it was built, even before its foundation, by the sabini people to bring salt from the Adriatic. Precisely for this reason, in antiquity, it was a very important way; today it is nothing more than a very busy trading street of the urbe.

  • This road, which arrives from Rome to Ascoli, takes its name from the salt transport in Roman times was done to bring salt from the Adriatic Sea in the capital. Today, unfortunately, is very bad, very busy, not broad enough, often with holes, so even with many accidents, both in part within the ring road is out. Unfortunately I pass often for work. If you can avoid it If you enjoyed this review, you can read my other for Rome (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)
