The north-east of Italy has always been a great crossroads of routes coming from Eastern Europe: depending on the point of entry at the Italian border, the roads were leading to different paths, but all following the same direction, converging all in the same main route that was leading to Rome.
This path was traveled by thousands of pilgrims from the north-east, who were reaching the ports of the upper Adriatic Sea to reach the Holy Land by sea, or to arrive in Rome and in Santiago de Compostela on foot.
Besides retracing the footsteps of the pilgrims of the medieval era, who were coming from the Baltic countries, this route also represented the channel of trade routes of amber, salt and iron, as well as for the knowledge and the wisdom coming from the Universities of Bohemia and Moravia in Czech Republic and Poland. The territory in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which is crossed by this route, is characterized by natural landscapes, trails and pathways, Magredi lands, morainic hills, springs, along the beautiful valley of the river Tagliamento, which all constitute a unique and rare ambience.
The main route leads to Rome through the Via Romea Allemagna, the Via Romea Annia, the Via Romea Nonantolana-Longobarda and the Via Francigena
