We heard information from my guy about the layout of the rotunda and side buildings. We also learned about the architects and how he complied with Thomas Jefferson’s plans.

What a beautiful campus! The lawn is well maintained. Historical buildings with easy access. Students are quite friendly to tourists and you can even take a free guided tour of the historical aspects of the college.

Parking is impossible during the week, somewhat relaxed during the weekends. There is a nice tour at 10:a & 11:a on Saturday mornings.

So much history envelopes this campus ... it's worth a trip just to see the architecture and then there is the art and beauty of it painted against the majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is just a lovely lovely place.

We went on a historical tour of the campus while in Charlottesville and enjoyed it very much. Our kids, 15 and 13, also found it interesting! It was led by a student who did an excellent job.

The tour times weren't clear from their website so we ended up missing it. But it was fun to walk around the campus a bit on our own. The historical tours are only offered at specific times so be sure to call and check!

The tour is not necessary. You can definitely appreciate the architecture without it. I'd say tour is more for prospective students.

You do not need to make a reservation. You just need to show up at the gallery at the scheduled times. You can find the tour times and location on the college website.
