DAY PRIVATE TOUR IN THE NATIVE TOWN OF LEONARDO DA VINCI (car and walking tour)
A day tour to Vinci to discover the origin of the genius of Leonardo!
I will meet you at your hotel/accommodation in Florence, or in another town in Tuscany, and then drive to Vinci (25 Miles West of Florence), native town of Leonardo da Vinci.
I’ll tell you in deep about the most emblematic men of the Italian Renaissance: Leonardo!
He was born in Vinci on 1452; he spent there his childhood and adolescence and Vinci still preserves the same urban and countryside landscape it had when the young genius started his investigation of the natural phenomena, and made his first hydraulic experiments in the small river of the town.
We’ll visit the local museums, Leonardo’s birthplace, and we’ll walk beautiful rolling hills with olive groves and vineyard.
I am not going to give you a lecture – unless you want to – I will be informative but I won’t overdo with too many dates and names, I’ll make your visit fun with anecdotes and legends, you will have time to enjoy a typical local meal, coffee, ice cream: I know you are here on holiday and your holiday is meant to be relaxing and fun!
