Admissions Interview: No - UVa does not hold interviews for undergraduates. I attended the "Days on the Lawn" program for admitted students.
Information Session: Yes - It was fair; nothing too fantastic
Campus Tour: Yes - Nothing new. Basically, a here is this building! and there is that! with a couple of interesting facts and tidbits sprinkled in. Your usual tour.
Classroom Visit: Yes - I got tricked into sitting in on an Ecology class. Don't ever go to BIOL302. I feel asleep. Check the COD online for classes on the day you visit and just sit in the back of a class your interest

Campus Visit Notes for University of Virginia
If you have a bad experience when visiting a college, try going again if you can. You may have had a bad guide first day, weather may have been off, etc. I know that was the case for me when I first visited UVa; I hated it. And now, I'm a student.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Take the UVa buses. They're free. Park at the Newcomb garage when your there for a visit; admissions will validate your parking. Leave your car there and explore grounds.
