The Via Aemilia Scauri was an ancient Roman road built by the Consul Marcus Aemilius Scaurus in 115 BCE.[1]

Route[edit]

It is mainly a coastal road, doubling Via Aurelia, and connecting Rome to Placentia and Pisa, passing through Genoa. Near the town of Cosa it runs inland and parallel to the Via Aurelia.

Further north the Via Aemilia Scauri merged with the Via Postumia to become the Via Julia Augusta.
