Charlottesville: Historic Presidential Homes

On Tuesday, May 22, we will travel to the old Michie Tavern for a tour and lunch. Then we are off for a tour of Jefferson’s Monticello. Enjoy a private reception and dinner at the Omni Charlottesville which is also our accomodations for the night. The Omni is a unique combination of local history and contemporary luxury – and it’s adjacent to the historic downtown Pedestrian Mall.

We begin Wednesday, May 23,  with a tour of  James Monroe’s Highland followed by a private wine tasting at the Virginia’s very first wine company – Jefferson Vineyards. Lunch is planned at the “Best Mediterranean Restaurant in C-Ville” – Orzo. Orzo offers a menu that fuses the culinary and vitaculture traditions of Italy, Greece, Spain, and the South of France.  The last stop on our tour of presidential homes is Montpelior, the home of James Madison. We’ll stop for dinner en route to Shippensburg.
