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.

Il faut absolument découvrir cette maison, car ce n'est pas vraiment un château tel qu'on l'imagine, surtout qu'il est très proche du grand château d'Amboise !...Période idéale pour la visite ; choisir le mois d'octobre. Peu de monde, pas de file interminables, salles et objets exposés, tout à fait accessibles. Léonard et les différents aspects de son génie ne peuvent être visibles, sous toutes les formes, qu'àu Clos Lucé. Vous verrez en plus, la version d'une autre Joconde, jumelle de celle mondialement connue !!!. Visiter également les jardins de Léonard. Tout est à "taille humaine", rien n'est ostentatoire. A ne manquer à aucun prix !
