Guided tours with local guides to Leonardo da Vinci’s birthplace

Our Local Guides will lead you in the visit of the great Leonardo da Vinci ‘s birthplace.

The village is still in a natural environment of rare beauty, an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the young Leonardo.

The guided tour starts off from Anchiano where, on 15th Aprile 1452, Leonardo da Vinci was born: that house still exists and it is open!

It continues through the narrow streets and squares of the village of Vinci, where, in the Church of Santa Croce, the baptismal font where Leonardo was baptized is preserved.

The tour goes on to the adjacent thirteenth century Rocca dei Conti Guidi, headquarters of the Leonardo Museum: here, with the help of scale models, you can discover the secrets of machines and devices designed by the genius.

The visit of Vinci can be combined with the guided tour of the Medici Villa in Cerreto Guidi (XVI century), one of the Medici family’s hunting residence built in 1561 at the behest of Granduca Cosimo I. Here, in 1574, was consumed the killing of Isabella de ‘Medici, Cosimo I’ s daughter, strangled by her husband because of her infidelity.
