5 centuries after his arrival in Amboise, you too can now visit the place where Leonardo da Vinci took up residence in 1516 upon the request of King Francis I. Here, he was “free to dream, think and work”. At the Château of Clos-Lucé, where he lived, you can wander through the gardens or his workshops where so many of his creations were born. Discover models of his inventions, enter his bedchamber with its view of the Royal Château of Amboise... Close your eyes and sense the genius’s spirit still present in the place.
