Top of the hill

While you cant get close these days it is still worth a look as from here you can take great shots down the mall toward the monument and lincon memorial.

The first monument that we visited on our trip to DC. Was great to be there and see a place that have seen so many times on TV and film. Heaps of photos, the best from th Mall side as the sun goes down and it is lit up.

We were overwhelmed by how huge this building is. Absolutely giant and elegant and imposing. Any visitor to the US would feel impressed to enter our center of democracy here. We took a tour without advance planning. It included a 20 minute film, which was good and about 20 minutes of walking with the guide through the rotunda and statue... More

Best views of the Capitol are from the steps of the Library of Congress. Worth the walk to visit the LOC and when you are upstairs gaze at the Capitol. You can also arrange with your local representative for a free tour inside the Capitol building. A must

Both parents and kids lived the experience at Capitol Hill. The history is new but great insight in the beginning of the U.S political system. Fairly you kids but the grasped the size and importance of the location. Think seeing it on every film helps😂

A free tour, best to book on the net beforehand ! Luckily, we went on a weekday, so it wasn't crowded at all . The tour guide did a good job of explaining the history behind this structure. The short film in the auditorium is very well made. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, a must visit in DC.

Great and superb place to visit and it is free. Check their website before you go so you know what you can only bring into the place. Tight security! Very impressive architecture with exquisite and expensive statues and artifacts. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and toured us in the museum. I had the opportunity to wander and peep into...
