A trip to visit Monticello is the best kind of history lesson. We opted to tour the inside of the house, even though cameras are not allowed. Once there you can understand why. The rooms are actually quite small! Each tour lasts about an hour and there are just the right amount of people in each tour to fill the room. You are moved along at a fair pace so that the next tour can come through. The information presented was very interesting and relevant. Thomas Jefferson was truly a Renaissance Man. I would encourage anyone to revisit his life andsignificant contributions.
