Archaeological Museum

Sorry for the lack of posting...exam time.  Anyway, this is the courtyard of the archaeological museum, which is located right off of Piazza Maggiore. The museum has collections of Roman, Greek, Etruscan, and Egyptian artifacts and is really quite a fascinating place. You can learn a lot about the history of the Emilia-Romagna region (where Bologna is located), and its Egyptian section is one of the most important in Italy. Torino's museum however holds the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in Italy.  Another plus, admission is free.  =)
