Full description
Learn about the history of Leonardo da Vinci and his masterpieces (including the Mona Lisa) during his time in France at the Château du Clos Lucé. Invited by King Francis 1st of France, Leonardo da Vinci left Italy and took up residence at the Château du Clos Luce in the autumn of 1516. Appointed "first painter, engineer and architect to the King", Da Vinci served the monarch with his talents, working tirelessly on numerous projects and imagining plans for the "ideal château". With this admission ticket, you will receive access to both the castle and park. The visit will begin in the bedroom of Leonardo da Vinci, the site where Leonardo died in 1519 at the age of 67. From the window, you can see the Saint Hubert Chapel at the Royal Castle of Amboise, which is the burial place of Da Vinci. Whilst in the Leonardo da Vinci Park, you will learn about the artistic creations and major inventions of the artist. You will enter the imaginary world of Da Vinci, seeing the world as he did in these unique grounds.

    Avoid during a Covid period, it is a place where we want to linger over an object, and not to move forward all at the same pace On the other hand, this is the 2nd time that we go it is very interesting and , the park is very pleasant and exciting for children and adults

    It is absolutely necessary to discover this house, because it is not really a castle as one imagines it, especially since it is very close to the big castle of Amboise! ... Ideal period for the visit; choose the month of October. Few people, no endless line, rooms and exhibits, quite accessible. Leonardo and the various aspects of his genius can only be seen, in all forms, at Clos Lucé. You will also see the version of another Mona Lisa, twin of the world famous one !!!. Also visit the gardens of Leonardo. Everything is "human scale", nothing is ostentatious. Not to be missed at any price!

    Je suis allée la 1ère fois avec le conseil départemental gratuitement, j’ai tellement aimé, que j’ai emmené ma fille et mes petits-enfants pendant les vacances de la Toussaint (12 ans, 10 ans et 6 ans) j’ai admiré absolument tout, même les bouquets composés de fleurs fraîches, l’atelier de peinture du Génie ; l’hologramme de L de Vinci discutant avec un noble voyageur, toutes les inventions représentées avec des maquettes exceptionnelles ! Les jardins ! Et la boutique ! Je suis certaine que j’y retournerai même seule, pour la joie d’apprécier de nouveau ce Génie !
