Saturday Field Trip

Last Saturday I took students from my class on an "optional" field trip. We visited the Monument to Victor Emmanuel II, the king who was responsible for the unification of Italy.We climbed 124 steps in front of the Church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli to reach a glass elevator that took us to the top of the monument.

When this equestrian statue was completed there was a celebration with 20 people sitting down to lunch inside the horse.
