I recommend taking a day trip to tour the Grounds at the University of Virginia. If you're savvy with the area, you can find parking along the streets (most are two-hour spots) or park downtown and ride the free trolley to Grounds. There are several parking garages available in the area for a fee from which you can ride a... More

Had a delightful walk through the rotunda and main campus. The dorm rooms along the quad area in front of the rotunda were very neat and a must see

We visited the University of Virginia campus very briefly . We liked very much the student-friendly setting of the campus.We also learned from our friends ( whose son is graduate of the Law School there ) that it is a highly rated University in the US.

You need to book a guided tour. The students do a wonderful job taking you back in time and explaining how the university came to be.

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is currently under construction. Even with this being said, the grounds at UVA are beautiful and Jefferson's vision is explained well by your student tour guide. We toured MANY college campuses when our kids were selecting their schools and UVA was one of the most beautiful and interesting!

I graduated from UVA a few years ago, and it was probably the best decision I've ever made in my life. The schools are first-rate and there is something for everyone here. From a tourist perspective, it's a beautiful stroll through colonial architecture with Roman influences. The grounds are commanding and well-kept, with plenty of open spaces and quads, but... More
