"VINCI - LEONARDO'S BIRTHPLACE" Top 5 Page for this destination Vinci by sandysmith

Vinci Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 58 photos

VINCI, famous for the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, is located on the slopes of Montalbano. The museum is a must see to learn more about the genius Leonardo. Don't forget to explore the lovely countryside around here too.

Ever since this visit I have become more and more fascinated with Leonardo's inventions and his life story - the man was amazing. Vincii is a great place to learn about him and buy lots of souvenirs too. His style of writing was most peculiar too - backwards and a mirror image!

    An old gem I missed. I was intrigued by the same but who would have thought its origin! Nothing wrong with a rough edged chianti as long as you have some pungent cheese to smooth it out. ;)

    I've been to the place where Leonardo lived his last days (Amboise), maybe now it's time to visit his place of birth.

    Very nice Vinci page! I missed all the good stuff when I went through on a whim - but, hey, you can't see everything, right?
