Vinci Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 58 photos
Of course Leonardo was born here, but that's not the only reason to visit Vinci. They do pimp the hell out of Leonardo in this little town, but some how they do it with rustic charm. You can actually visit the house where Leonardo was born. It's a light hike up a hill behind the town.
This town has some of the best views in Tuscany, and the town is quite quaint. There is a very nice museum on Leonardo, and tons of gifts shops selling his likeness, but the town still has a very nice feel to it. And the views are really gorgeous. The gift shops have some very nice souvenirs.
- Pros:Spectacular Scenery and cute little town
- Cons:Far from other major attractions and could be considered touristy
- In a nutshell:Worth seeing if you're in the area, or if you love Leonardo Da Vinci
There are many gift shops in Vinci, and most are nice. If you want something related to da Vinci, then you're in... more travel advice
