The UVA visit was a nice touch after a visit to Monticello and house tour. One of the premier universities in the USA is well maintained and a lasting legacy to Thomas Jefferson

During my 2 week stay at Charlottesville, I wandered around the ground of the University many times. Beautiful buildings and layout, lovely grounds. Well worth spending a couple of hours here.

Was there yesterday, The campus is beautiful but much construction. It is very large to get around with many blocks closed. It is impossible to park. The parking lot was $3 per hour.

This is a beautiful campus. Checkout the rotunda, the church, and the room of Edgar Allen Poe while you stroll around the amazing grounds.

Thomas Jefferson's genius is on display for all too see at UVA. Beautiful historic college campus within the city limits. In some ways a typical campus but intriguing architecture make this a must see!

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.
