Perhaps the one event that stands out in my mind is when we all went together to a restaurant in Florence. This restaurant is constructed on top of an ancient Roman road, where a window on its basement wall let us see a piece of this ancient road.  In a corner, there was a medieval well (still in working condition). We sat on the main floor in front of an open kitchen. The students appreciated being in such a small place witnessing 2000 years of history! - Professor Francine Vinette
