Editorial Review

The only American house on the United Nation's list of World Heritage sites, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is a personal "essay in architecture" that speaks to Jefferson's ingenuity and devotion to classicism. The tour includes a walk through the house, an exploration of the plantation grounds -- where Jefferson's slaves lived and worked -- and a visit to the garden arboretum, orchards and vineyard.
