  • You can enter the room where he was born (s) I think it's a unique experience for anyone. Stunning location with a unique view.

  • Leaving aside the very impressive landscape. The House provides no basis for an interesting visit if not a 20 minute video about leonardo da vinci.

  • A few years ago you could get free entry in the birthplace of Leonardo, now there is an entrance fee. Luckily content. Inside you can watch a short video overview of the life of genius, and visit the other rooms (no furniture). The place is really nice, thanks to the surrounding nature. Great place to visit from spring to summer.

  • 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...
  • Very modern with high tech stuff to play with, but also one can imageine how was it when Leonardo was here as a child.
  • Nothing was as it was before, no furniture stayed where it was, it was a little museum, and as such, not even a good one.
  • Nice place to visit
  • Where it began for Leonardo!
