Brown University is not only one of the world's leading universities; it is a very attractive landmark to tour on top of College Hill on Providence's East Side. With a mixture of architectures in its older buildings, from Federalist to Gothic, and pleasant greens, flowering bushes (spring and summer), libraries and snack bars, the campus is a must-see if you are touring Providence. A call ahead via Brown's information number might get you onto one of the guided tours conducted throughout the year.
