Wear sturdy shoes and bundle up if you walk around Harvard in the Fall. This was a lovely campus to stroll through. Even without entering any buildings, it makes for a quiet and pleasant activity.

Great University and such a beautiful day we had to have a nice walk through campus. It's a shame we couldn't get inside many of the buildings, I recommend booking a tour to make the most of it.

I think it is the most beautiful university campus I have seen around the world.
It is a must visit for anyone coming to Boston, both during the day and evening.
The lighting during the evening/night adds to the very special atmosphere.

Took the student guided tour of Harvard. I’ve always wanted to be able to say I went to Harvard. Now I can! Student guide was informative and candid. Answered all questions and gave her opinions of Harvard men. (You look for guys with brains at Harvard. Not brawn. )
