The Via Egnatia is an ancient Roman trade route that links East and West. It begins in Durres or Dyrrachium and the old stone road runs east via Elbasan to Lake Ohrid, through Bitola in northern Macedonia, to Thessaloniki in Greece and eventually to Istanbul, Turkey.

So if you’re up for a historically inspired stroll you might be able to retrace the movements of the traders and legionaries of ancient times and explore a section of Via Egnatia.
