The campus is very calm, nice place to take a walk. We really had fun there. Many places to lunch, too
We visited the University and the Rotunda immediately after a morning visit to Monticello. It was an excellent, free experience. A largish group was shown round the Rotunda and the grounds by a very enthusiastic and engaging student who knew the history of her University and told some interesting anecdotes about student life. I thought the architecture of the University... More
Beautiful campus, school founded Thomas Jefferson, dorm room occupied by Edgar Allan Poe has been preserved as it was in his day. Head over to Monticello afterwards.
UVa was the crowning achievement of Thomas Jefferson's long and varied life, and was one of three accomplishments he felt suitable for his epitaph. Not only is it the nation's premiere architectural treasure, but it continues to produce generation after generation of mind bogglingly intelligent and successful people. A must see before you die.
After a visit to Monticello, and before rushing off to Staunton, we just drove through the UVA campus, with a quick stop in a no parking area for a couple of pictures of the Rotunda. I wish we'd made more time to stop and walk around, or better yet, for a tour. An absolutely beautiful campus.
We learned so much about Thomas Jefferson and his desire to start this wonderful university. Would definitely recommend a tour.
UVA's central grounds are absolutely gorgeous and a must see site in Charlottesville. While the artistry of Jefferson's architecture is appreciated with a casual walk through the buildings, a proper tour brings to light fascinating points of history as well as subtleties in the design that would be otherwise missed.
The University of Virginia ranks very high on the list of universities all over the world...outstanding education is available to all. Thomas Jefferson's incredible architectural vision is seen throughout the campus. The Rotunda is the mosts familiar and astounding piece of architecture - designed by Mistah Jefferson (as he is referred to in the south) The "grounds" behind the Rotunda... More
The university tour was the best choice after we toured Monticello, so close by. The architecture and landscape of the school, the history of Jefferson made this a perfect fit. We did our own self guided tour after we read about this great institution, but I'm sure a guided tour will reveal other inside information. There are many lunch places... More
We don't have ties to UVA, but we were passing through and decided to take the free Rotunda and Grounds Tour. The campus and grounds are breathtaking! Our student guide was well spoken, very interesting and knowledgeable. While touring the Rotunda, we saw several students studying inside. The view of the lawn from the dome room is spectacular! So glad... More
