Charlottesville is a midsize college town located in Central Virginia, 2 hours (by car) south of Washington, DC. It offers great hiking in the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains, numerous nice restaurants in the downtown area, local wineries, and such. There are also several interesting American history sites, like Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. The local airport code is CHO, and this airport is the most comfortable way to getting to the town. Another close airport (1 hour drive) is Richmond (RIC). The closest major international airports are Washington Dulles (IAD) and Washington Reagan (DCA).
Unfortunately, no public transportation or shuttles exist between RIC or IAD and Charlottesville (from DCA, Washington Metro + Amtrak is a lengthy but public option). Here are some options:
If you need any further help arranging travel details (for example, pooling a rental car from IAD), please email Leo Petrov.
