Via Claudia Augusta

The Emperor’s Road Across the Alps

Formerly the most important north-south link through the Alps, the ancient Via Claudia Augusta imperial Roman road took ambassadors and Roman traders from Adria and the north across the Alps to the Danube, through Bolzano, Merano and Glorenza, which was an important centre in the salt trade. From there, through the Resia Pass, lay the passage to the north.

The Via Claudia Augusta which was first built under the Emperor Augustus as an extension of the already existing connecting roads leading across the Alps, from the Po plains to the Danube. Today, the old Roman road enjoys great popularity. From Malles/Mals to Merano/Meran there is an 80km-long, easy bicycle trail running along the Via Claudia Augusta. It crosses many historic market towns, castles, ruins and ancient sites: the Monte Maria monastery with its frescos, Malles with its seven Romanesque churches, the medieval town of Glorenza/Glurns and the early Romanesque St. Proculus Church in Naturno/Naturns.
