Fieldtrip:  Tour of Villas of Ancient Stabiae
 
Blog: Today's instruction included a tour of the Scavi Archelogici (archeology sites) Villa excavations of Ancient Stabiae.  Morning excursion took us to Villa Arianna guided by Audrey Fastuca, Academic Program Coordinator, Vesuvian International Institute, Restoring Ancient Stabiae (RAS) Foundation.  Audrey is very passionate about sharing the wonder of the villas and their contributions to understanding these Roman sites as centers of power and influence.  Our students are captivated by her presentations and infectious passion for the Restoring Ancient Stabiae (RAS) foundation's mission.   Afternoon activities included lunch at the Vesuvian Institute followed by a tour of Villa San Marco guided by Professor Coyle.  The students enjoyed the villas and made many new discoveries.
 
Afternoon: This afternoon we were joined by the University of Wisconsin, Madison's  Classics study abroad program with 20 students and Professor Laura McClure.  This was the final leg of their 24 hours in transit and they looked exhilarated and exhausted (much like our students did a week ago).  Some of our students joined them in a tour of Castellammare di Stabia and later led them in evening ritual of passagiatta (evening stroll).  One of the greatest benefits of study at the Vesuvian institute is the opportunity for interaction between our students and other colleges and university programs.
