We toured around Capital Hill and saw the seat of government from several sides. Neither the house nor the senate were in session so the flags were down. Fortunately the scaffolding for the iron dome is down as the renovation work has finished. Work has already begin to build the stage for the inauguration of the new president.

This building represents DC in many ways. All the Politics and etc. Yes, the politics can be very much improved in this country, but it's just fascinating to see such a symbol of DC in all it's classic architecture.

I have visited the Capitol Building several times in the past 30 years and everytime I visit it is so powerful and stately. i always look forward to seeing a new sight, writing, statue or running into a poiliticain by accident. You cannot leave Washington, D.C. without visitng this great monument representing the free world.

Capitol Hill is a fascinating venue to visit, like everywhere there is a queue to get in but it moves quickly and does not take long (remember not to have any liquid with you). The tour was informative and the guides knowledge was brilliant

Missed the tour here but the building was great to see anyway. Went for th photo op which took you up to the inside of the rotunda. To get to the outside of the rotunda non-Americans need to prearrange through their embassy. Wish I had known as it would have been spectacular to do that

Walking around Capital Hill gives you a whole different sense about what the US Government is all about. The cacophony of today's political campaigns fades in the face of these impressive buildings. Farsighted people invested a great deal in these monuments to democracy. They are absolutely worth experiencing in person.

This is certainly one of the most spectacular buildings in the world. Timed tickets make access extremely easy and efficient.
