    The signs leading you to Monticello are easy to follow. Once you get to the main building and parking buy your tickets and board the buses that take you up the mountain to the estate house.

    You are not permitted to drive past the giftshop and ticket center.

    There is picnic tables here, bathrooms and hiking trails. You can walk up to the House or take the buses provided. They are part of your entrance fees.
