Small house but you perceive the story of a genius. In particular a small window, from where you can imagine the view that Leonardo saw. It is true that we can feel someone and/or something from poor and simple situations and things.
Italy is a small country but full of great emotions.

Not a huge amount to see if you are not a Leonardo geek but worth a visit to see where the master spent a small amount of time. Probably best not to walk from town as roads are a bit narrow with no path although there is supposed to be a "green route". Get it as part of the three location museum ticket and it's good value.

The house is on top of a hill, and there is not much to see in the house that Leonardo lived in as a boy, but its a nice side trip if you wish to see a small Tuscan town. However if you are interested in a outdoor wedding I can tell you there is no better place. I was just recently married in Vinci right next to his house overlooking all of Tuscany. The city of Vinci owns the property so they are allowed to do outside weddings. The wedding planner company is ------.

Great place on the hill overlooking Tuscan olive groves and vineyards. Can fully understand his fascination with living things, birds, animals and water when you see what looks like an insignificant building.

We were disappointed with the place. Birthplace of such an important person should offer a lot more. Basically it's just a few empty rooms, one of them presents a short movie (30 min) either in Italian or English where the AC was working very poorly, so it got really hot. There was no one at the info point, just a few leaflets in Italian and a non-functional presentation.

If you visit in the high season you’ll have to walk up to this site rather than be dropped off in the adjacent car park - I don’t think it’s worth the walk! Poor facilities(no paper in the ladies loo), but great views.

In general, there's nothing in there- restoration was done in the beginning of the 20th century and all that you can see is few empty rooms and a fireplace with a coat of arms of the Vinci family on the opposite wall. There is a lot to be done, especially for a such great artist as Leonardo. In general, the experience is poor, so it's better not to go there with high expectations.

Not much there apart from a table with a few chairs and a video that tells Vinci’s story. This said it’s part of the ticket and you don’t pay extra plus you get to drive through some lovely Tuscan countryside so go there with low expectations and you won’t be disappointed.

Terrible “movie” with “Leonardo” talking about his life in the first person. Presentation was excruciatingly slow, his (I am assuming) Italian script was lip synced like a bad king fu movie to English.

3 rooms. Unless you are a true LDV history junkie, skip this.

Dear Sir, we are sorry that you didn't appreciate the visit to Leonardo's Birthplace and, in particular, the 3d hologram. This one was realized after a deep study of Leonardo's language, using his own words when possible, to give the perception to be listening to him. Maybe with the English translation, some of this intensity got lost. Thank you anyway for your visit!

I have visited Leonardo's birthplace many times. When I was a child, when I was a teenager and with my family as an adult several times. This is the humble dwelling where one of (if not the one) western civilization's greatest person was born. Complaining that there is nothing to see, is so ridiculous. There are olive trees across from the house that were probably there when he was a child. The whole point is that Leonardo became what he became notwithstanding where and under what conditions he was born.
