The Countries


In VINCI, a typical Tuscan village near Florence, everything talks about Leonardo: the toponym that Leonardo keeps in his name, the landscape that echoes in all his works, the house where he was born, the Castle with the Church where he was baptized and a few buildings that belonged to the Da Vinci and to his mother;the places where he had his first artistic training.


The last residence of Leonardo da Vinci, CLOS LUCÉ is located 600 meters from the Royal Castle of AMBOISE in the heart of the Loire Valley. In the Castle of Clos Lucé, Leonardo da Vinci spent the last three years of his life (1516-1519), he completed his last masterpieces and dedicated himself to numerous projects for his patron, King Francesco I


VIPAVA is located in a green valley crossed by the river of the same name (in Italian Vipacco) in an area rich in vineyards, known by lovers of good wine and for its wine and food tourism. Leonardo went there in the first few months of the year 1500, developing plans to defend from the Turks the territory of the Republic of Venice, in the current border area between Italy (Friuli Venezia Giulia) and Slovenia.
