Route of Via Aemilia Scaura (in light blue)

The Via Aemilia Scauri was an ancient Roman road built by the consul Marcus Aemilius Scaurus during his term as censor in 109 BC.[1]


It is mainly a coastal road, doubling Via Aurelia, and connecting Rome to Placentia and Pisae, 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.
