  • To me it was a special feeling to walk in the house were once lived Da Vinci. The environment is beautiful and at this moment there was a well maintained exhibition with a videomontage about Da Vinci  more »

  • In the hills east of Montecatini, we found our way to da Vinci's very simple birthplace. Nearby, we explored an engaging, professional museum featuring his drawings and devices built from his specs. M...  more »

  • Over-Restored, and of dubious Provenance... The house itself is a decent example of Medieval Tuscan architecture, but overall it feels "new", rather than ancient. This is probably due to the fact that it was rebuilt from its foundations up just a few decades ago. Then there's the fact that no records exist as to it actually having been the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci. The only extant records certify that it was owned by the da Vinci family around the time of Leonardo's birth. If you're doing a tour of the area, this is a place to see along the way. It's not something I would go out of my way to see...
  • Fun to visit but nothing amazing. Location very nice, views and smells and everything.
  • Wonderful Tuscan landscape but not much to see in the museum, only a nice audiovisual about his life
  • The museum doesn't have much aside from an interesting 20 minute video presentation. If you're wanting to visit everything related to Leonardo don't miss it, but other than that it's not worth veering off your path.
  • Very modern with high tech stuff to play with, but also one can imageine how was it when Leonardo was here as a child.
