What to expect

Follow in the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci at Clos Lucé. Situated within the grounds of the Château d’Amboise, one of France's most beautiful castles, it was here that da Vinci spent the last three years of his life (1516-1519) at the invitation of King Francis I. While resident, da Vinci completed his famous "St John the Baptist" as well as the "Mona Lisa". Visitors can see the rooms where these masterpieces were created, as well as the chambers of Marguerite de Navarre, the castle kitchen and also recreations of Leonardo's workshop. Leonardo took over the castle's basement, where you can encounter the incredible machines made by this genius. See the mechanical system for the world's first automobile; the very first model of a military tank, or even the very first multi-directional machine gun. There's no better way to understand the brilliance of the most famous Renaissance figure than by passing through the Leonardo da Vinci Park, where you can see reproductions of these amazing machines - from his most intricate, small-scale inventions to the most grandiose dreams of his imagination.
