Via Salaria is one of the most ancient routes, built several times by the Romans to be the capital of the Adriatic Sea, to this day still in operation is best known as State Route 4 - better if we refer to as the SS 4. The curious name comes from the use made by the Roman road which was mainly the transport of salt harvested from the ancient salt presumably just allocated in the Marche. Part of the Aurelian Walls at Porta Salaria exit, of course, goes straight to Fort Antennas Aniene to cross the river and after a lot of km to reach the current Fidene Borgata.Originally, the road branches off from lawns and areas of improvement, only later remedied, rather we say that reclaiming the final took place about two centuries later.Via Salaria exit from the outskirts of Rome goes to Settebagni to finally take the direction of the Old Marcigliana estate where there was an ancient Roman settlement known as Crustumerium.A little further you begin to see the first mountains, we pass the current Corese direction Fara Sabina.Here Salaria was divided into two parts very important for the ancient trade, in fact, a street near Ponte Buite went to Cecilia Street which ended in Atri - the ancient Hatria - while the other section of reach Rieti. First of Rieti, in fact, there are two distinct sections that one turns to the east beyond the Apennines towards Sella di Corno to overlook the plain of Amiternum close of the Eagle takes Capannelle Pass and goes up to Teramo, or rather across the country called Pretutii.

The other section of Rieti from dating for a while until the river Velino at the Baths of Cotilia exploited by the Romans in fact enhanced by un'insediamento adequately large so as to open near a real spa with thermal waters always warm sour and sulphurous.Continuing on you come to just below the Monte Giano Antrim where, again, the Romans built another spa. But wages are not stopped, continues north along the river and through the gorges and mountains.Here culture and preparation of the Romans is unquestionably to center stage.To overcome all these "unforeseen" Augustus and Trajan's engineers excelled themselves by adopting the technical solutions that still amaze us today.After passing the mountains along the Via Salaria goes flat in the valley of the Tronto Marche meet city so famous and important today as Pescara del Tronto, Acquasanta Terme (again used by the Romans as a spa town due to water albula), Letter, Mail , Favalanciata, Quintodecimo to get to Ascoli Piceno. Moving ever forward to finally meet the sea near Castrum Trentium village near Porto d'Ascoli in the town of San Benedetto del Tronto.
