An experience of real Tuscany
LEONARDO DA VINCI and his vineyard
The tour starts in Anchiano where you will visit Leonardo’s birthplace; a simple farmhouse nestled among the olive trees where a hologram speaks about the life of the Maestro who still a young man left Vinci for Florence where he entered the workshop of Andrea Verrocchio.
We then continue with visits to Palazzina Uzzielli and Conti Guidi Castle which house many examples of his inventions, writings and drawings.
Leaving Vinci we will stop in a nearby beautiful Medici Villa to enjoy a traditional Tuscan lunch (washed down with excellent wine of their production).
Moreover we will have the opportunity to visit the only existing vineyard which contains clones of the Malvasia di Candia vines given to Leonardo by Ludovico Sforza (also known as Ludovico il Moro) while he was living and working in Milan.
