Roman streets

The Romans left behind many lively traces during their settlement of the greater local area. Whether on foot, on horseback, with heavily-loaded wagons or by ship; their intention was always the constant expansion of their empire. A prerequisite for this was a dense network of streets, which made locomotion and development much easier. Rest stops and settlements, which often grew quite quickly, were set up at more or less regular intervals.

Closely linked to this was the economic, cultural and religious development of the conquered areas, and the melding of their southern culture and lifestyle with the traditions of the Celts based here. Palaces and villas, bridges and luxurious baths, temples and tombs, wine presses, quarries, mines and lime kilns bear eloquent witness to an important legacy.
