Discovering Leonardo da Vinci: exploring the genius hometown - Meet The Genius

A “Renaissance Man” in every sense of the word *
Many consider Leonardo Da Vinci to be the world’s most famous painter, rivaled only by Michelangelo.
The town of Vinci is about 40km far from Florence, among the stunning hills of Tuscany. Real international renown of Vinci was earned as being the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, who was born there on April 15th, 1452.
Nowadays, Vinci itself offers tourists and families with kids the chance to see many places connected to Leonardo’s life, even if the real house (where the genius raised and lived) is just outside the center of Vinci, on the foothills of Montalbano in a village called Anchiano.
So if you would love to discover more about Leonardo da Vinci, come to Vinci and explore the Museo Leonardiano (Leonardo Museum) and its birthplace. You won’t regret it!!
