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.

    My whole family really enjoyed spending the afternoon at Château du Clos Lucé. My two year old daughter loved the VR recording of Davinci and Francis I as well as the kids play area and playing around with Davinci's inventions. The staff everywhere was friendly and helpful which made the day relaxed and enjoyable.

    It was immaculate... The house, gardens and facilities. I learned so much about v all the concepts he came up with, well before his time, and lovely to see these models brought to life around the grounds. Very good and not too art/painting focused so I think children of maybe 8+ would enjoy this too.

    What a fun and exciting place! There is so much room to spread out and get out of the crowds with plenty of shade in this gorgeous park setting. We parked near ‘entrance 2’ and went straight in with our skip-the-line vouchers through a separate entrance. We paid 3,80 after half the day, btw. Delicious gelato down the steps below the castle helped keep our blood sugar up! Eventually, we toured the castle where Leonardo Da Vinci lived. The life-size models of Da Vinci’s inventions were fun and the museum of his architect has a clean toilet as you enter this marvelous exhibit! One of our best days yet!
