Did you know that Leonardo Da Vinci, the famous Italian Renaissance artist/inventor and creator of the world-famous Mona Lisa painting, spent his last years in the Loire Valley and is buried in Amboise?
In the 16th century, Da Vinci was invited the French king Francis I to help him design the Château de Chambord. He was given another nearby château as a home: le Clos Lucé.
Meet your private, fully-licensed guide and let them show you around the inventor’s former house. Follow your guide as they take your family through some of the key rooms of the mansion, including Da Vinci’s bedroom, dining room, kitchen and his atelier where he painted some of his masterpieces.
Then, proceed to the basement and gardens, where some real fun awaits. They feature some of Da Vinci’s extraordinary inventions. Your children will be able to play with these life size inventions and understand the genius’ work.
The children will be kept entertained and engaged throughout the visit as they will each get a fun-filled game booklet.
