It is fantastic. It is my dream uni, though I know I have no chance to be a member of it. So, I bought some souvenir in its old tranditional souvenir shop. I recommend the travellers should join the HAVAD (something like that) campus tour.
Visiting date was in July 2009.

Well if your in Cambridge MA, you will probably go here! Its beautiful but not as charming as the Cambridge UK. As for the usefully tips - its not to hard to find a car parking, and restaurants are ok around the uni.

Visiting Harvard was like finally "at Harvard". Ivy League and all the hype, it was good to finally see the school that produces some of the world's finest minds. With its rich history and cultures, it was obvious that Harvard is half what it is as a result of preserved cultures and traditions. It was an impressive outing!

Got a free tour from one of the Students. Well worth spending the time to hear the history of the university.

Well I visited the Campus :0) Another must visit for a trip to Boston is Harvard. Well known across the world and the subject of many a film. The campus is well worth a walk around, and taking a few pictures.
