The tour begins at the Frank Lloyd Wright® Visitor Center, the only free-standing restaurant designed by Wright. From there, the tour moves to Unity Chapel, built for Wright’s maternal family, where Wright’s gravesite is located. Next, the tour takes you to Hillside, the school that Wright designed for his aunts. At Hillside, you’ll explore the Assembly Hall, Fellowship Dining Room, Drafting Studio, the Theater and gallery space.
A country walk takes you past the Romeo and Juliet Windmill Tower, the oldest design on the estate. Next, you’ll get a close-up look at Tan-y-deri, the home Wright built for his sister Jane Porter, and Midway Barns en route to the house itself. Two hours into the tour, you’ll be served light refreshments on Mr. Wright’s Terrace before enjoying an exterior tour of his home. Finally, you’ll spend a delightful hour inside Taliesin.
Comfortable walking shoes are a must for this tour, since it includes a mile-and-a-half hike from one end of the estate to the other, with few places to sit down.
