Create an itinerary including University of Virginia
University of Virginia is a renowned center of learning--as well as a prime example of Jeffersonian architecture. The university's layout is a result of Thomas Jefferson's plan to design a stimulating environment for contemplation and intellectual exchange. All the famous parts, such as the Lawn, the Gardens, and the Range, serve this purpose. The centerpiece of the university is the Rotunda, inspired by the Roman Pantheon; it originally housed the university library. Subsequent extensions were carefully made to match Jefferson's original design. Walking tours are available, but you should make an online reservation ahead of time.

  • We were here on a college tour/engineering open house. It is a beautiful campus and everyone was so friendly! Buildings are very beautiful and feels very historical.

  • Everyone was amazing and very helpful! Thank you for taking such good care of me at the hosptial!
  • Depending on the time you get to the ER if they will be busy or not. I have only been on a few floors and what I can tell the nurses are nice and a few really do care about you and and not just here for a paycheck. I have talked to UVA Security and Millennium Security and both work here are are really helpful.
