All Roads Lead to Rome: The Roads of Ancient Rome

Did you know that Roman roads were dug through mountains and across rivers? This video is all about Roman roads, how they were built, and how they lasted for centuries.

Roman roads were, then, the arteries of the empire. They connected communities, cities, and provinces, and without them, the Romans could surely not have conquered and held onto the vast territories they did over so many centuries. Further, such were the engineering and surveying skills of the Romans that many of their roads have provided the basis for hundreds of today's routes across Europe and the Middle East. Many roads in Italy still use the original Roman name for certain stretches, and even some bridges, such as at Tre Ponti in modern Fàiti, still carry road traffic today.
