My students in the Teatro Romano, en route to the Museo Archaeologico.

On Friday afternoon, we took a class field trip up to the Museo Archaeologico, which is in a villa at the top of a big hill overlooking the Teatro Romano (the Roman theater). Here are all of the students sitting in the Teatro Romano. The museum has lovely examples of floor and wall mosaics, excavated from Verona sites, as well as other architectural fragments. There is also a collection of tiny bronze figures, probably funerary, and bronze and glass domestic items. Well worth the hike up and the view of Verona from the top is spectacular! For more pictures, go to my Picasa album.
