1. Milan: Leonardo's Vineyard Museum
As you explore Leonardo’s Vineyard, immerse yourself in the lifestyle of Leonardo da Vinci. Enjoy an included digital guide of Milan. Leonardo’s Vineyard was gifted to him in 1498 by Ludovico Sforza, a former Duke of Milan, who assigned him the task of creating The Last Supper. The Vineyard soon became one of Leonardo’s most admired possessions. With a long list of winemakers in his family, he enjoyed growing his own grapes and creating his own wines for many years to follow. When he left his residence in Milan, he continued to care for the vineyard and even generously left it in his will to two of his servants. Today, visitors can rediscover this hidden gem either on an Italian or English guided tour, led by a knowledgeable local guide. If you prefer to explore at your leisure, you can opt for an entry ticket and audio guide, offering you valuable insights into the attraction’s history. With either option, you can stroll through the house, vineyard, garden, and greenhouses, and even marvel at the original vines that were re-planted many years ago. In addition to this, included in your ticket, you will receive a smartphone tour of Milan that will allow you to see the city’s highlights from a new perspective while listening to the multilingual audio commentary about many points of interest. Take advantage of many suggested routes through the city.
