Via Egnatia bis

La via Egnatia fut probablement la première autoroute internationale reliant les 2 capitales de l’Empire Romain Rome et Constantinople, l’actuel Istanbul.  Pour traverser le nord de la Grèce j’ai suivi une variante de cette route qui m’a ammené autant dans les montagne avec le passage du col du Katara ou le mont Olympe que le long de spendide plage comme à Corfu ou en Chalcidique. Niveau fun je decerne une mention spéciale à Ionnina, Trikala et Komotini.

Die Via Egnatia, die erste Autobahn des römischen Weltes zwischen Roma und Konstantinopel, die heutzutage Istanbul. Im Nord Griechland ich eine “via bis” von dieser Straße gefolgt. Auf meinem Weg habe goßartige Landschafte in den Bergen wie Omlyp Berg oder Katara Pass aber auch wunderbare Strand wie im Korfu oder im Chalkidiki. Endlich gewinnen die wenigeren beruhmten Sädte Ionnina, Trikala und Komotini die Spaß Medaille. 

The via Egnatia was likely the first highway of the world. It was linking the both capitale of roman empire: Roma and Constantinople, the today Istanbul. During my rtrip in Nord of Greece I followed a kind of “bis” via Egnatia. I cross the Katara pass and saw amazing mountainous landscape like in front the Olymp Mount but of course I enjoyed the beatiful greek beaches like in Corfu or in Chalkidiki. Ionnina, Trikala and Komotini, which are maybe less touristics place, won also the “funny time” medals.
