The Via Cassia was an important Roman road striking out of the Via Flaminia near the Milvian Bridge in the immediate vicinity of Rome and, passing not far from Veii, traversed Etruria. The Via Cassia passed through Baccanae, Sutrium (modern Sutri), Volsinii (modern Bolsena) , Clusium, Arretium (modern Arrezo), Florentia (modern Florence, Pistoria, and Luca (modern Lucca), joining the Via Aurelia at Luna (modern Luni).
