In the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci in Chambord, Amboise and the Clos-Lucé
Following the meanders of the Loire river, we discover a land of famous vineyards and fairytale castles, many of them are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A trip to the Loire is the opportunity to dive into the royal history of France, discover the changes brought by the Renaissance in terms of the king’s comfort, the architectural innovation in the royal palaces and in general the evolution of art.
We will focus on 2 men who brought great changes to France: King Francis the first and Leonardo Da Vinci. This trip will take you to the Clos-Lucé castle in the morning where we will discover the last house of Da Vinci where many of his inventions are exposed in the park. Feel free to try them!
Then we will head to Amboise to see the resting place of Mr Leonardo Da Vinci, painter, engineer and friend of the king of France. After lunch, we will visit Chambord, King Francis’ most famous palace, an architectural wonder – before heading back to Paris.
