The itinerary has been decided in 1926.Only2448 miles (about 4000 kilometers) of the road only 800 miles are (revétues);During the after war, the road 66 constitued a major itinerary
Theitinerary was decided in 1926.However, 2448 miles on the road, only 800 were paved. In the post war, Route 66 is a major route around which many cities aregrowing.
Hundreds of cafes, curio shops and service stations established along the road.
 But in the mid 50s with the construction of the motorway, theroad loses  usefulness.
 Today, all the shops and who lived in villages 66 were abandoned, frozen in time. Countless ghost town and along the oldroad, always open to adventure travelers.
 Tradition dictates that the travels from East to West, as European settlers and tourists of the 50s and the 60s.
