There are no original artworks in Vinci anymore, just reproductions. I was a bit disappointed by that. The entrance fee in a combi of museum, birth house and an exposition. Still, it was nice to walk where the great man himself walked.

Leonardo’s birthplace is included in the museum ticket at Vinci. It’s a lovely place, interesting to see and a great video on his life (English and Italian)

We had a docent led tour of this home. It included a movie giving insight into DiVincis life and perspective. Great way to learn about DiVinci.

Beautiful setting, evocative, and informative. Particularly the 3D virtual tour of his life which we were reluctant to watch as it was 22 mins, but it did give a sense of his life.

Entertaining and enlightening visit. Amazing to think that the man himself lived there, touched those walls, walked in those stones. If you go to the tourist info centre in Vinci they will call a shuttle for you (€1 each way) to take you/bring you back...More
