Appian Way Financial Services

‘Your pathway to financial security’

Why the name ‘Appian Way’?

The Appian Way was the main road of the Roman Empire and during that era it was the world’s most important road.

The road was lengthened several times until arriving at Brindisi on the Adriatic coast, where boats left for Egypt, Greece, North Africa and other far reaching parts of the Roman Empire.

The Appian Way was commonly called the “queen of roads” and was the reason for the famous saying “all roads lead to Rome”.

The Appian Way was the main factor that allowed the Romans to efficiently move their forces and keep them adequately supplied to become a formidable force.

Over the centuries, Appian Way became recognised as the pathway that helped the Roman Empire build its considerable wealth.
