  • Probably not the real house where Leonardo was born. However, it is likely because Leonardo the documentation says that he was born in one of the houses of the estate of which this stone farmhouse is part. Surrounded by olive trees, convenient parking, green and relaxation: If the gradient of Leonardo's paintings were born here there would be nothing unusual. Itself is not much to see except the nice 3D reconstruction of the life of genius that runs every 20 minutes (if it works). But it's all too fascinating to think that one of the smartest people in history were born in these hills.

  • I read many comments in awe of the place of the Green silence etc. .. well the Italy's full exit from town! That said there is more. Rejected and nothing short of useless. 2 headlamps alternated with multiple languages that alternate and stop.

  • The road that connects the Leonardo's birthplace, located in Anchiano to Vinci is part of a hilly landscape was similar to what Leonardo da Vinci lived directly from childhood. The birth of Leonardo da Vinci, which took place on 15 April 1452, this farmhouse is supported by an ancient tradition universally accepted. The House at the time was part of the buildings belonging to the Villa of Ferrale which was headed by Mr Masetti. It was reopened a few years ago after a restoration and by adding a decidedly modern museum exhibition.

  • 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!
