Tour Thomas Jefferson’s ancestral home just outside of Charlottesville, and discover more than just the history of a President. Inventor, thinker, farmer, and oenophile Jefferson left behind an impressive legacy at his mountaintop Monticello, including a revolutionary vegetable garden, a fully operational plantation (including slave quarters) and nearly 5,000 acres of land. Today, guests can tour nearly the entire home, learn about the Declaration of Independence author’s fascinating (and at times sordid) personal history, perform research in the library, and visit Jefferson’s burial site.
