Virgo lies between Leo (the Lion) and Libra (the Scales). To find it, start at Leo and head East. Most of Virgo is dim and rather difficult to trace. In fact, Virgo has only one bright star, Spica. This blue-white gem is the 16th brightest star in the sky.
Below Virgo lies the constellation Corvus, the crow. It is compact, reasonably bright and easy to locate. With the Dolphin and the Lizard, it is one of my favourite small constellations. The Messier object M104 is also known as the Sombrero galaxy; it is easily visible in a small telescope from a reasonably dark site. I can see it with binoculars from my semi-rural sites.
Beside Corvus, see if you can find Crater, the Cup. This challenging constellation is large and dim; its brightest star is only magnitude 4.
