Here is the best way to walk in da Vincis footsteps
To commemorate the life of this renowned renaissance genius, Tuscany Now & Morehave introduced a new and comprehensive cultural tour of Florence and the surrounding landscape to celebrate his life and work.
Guests will be guided around key sites in the Leonardo da Vinci story; from his birthplace; his places of inspiration; and Florence where many of his works are now situated. Returning to their villa, guests can sleep in history in a host of exquisite properties only a stone’s throw away from the heart of the Renaissance with links to the Leonardo story.
Begin where Leonardo began, in Florence, where he spent his early life and some later years. Absorb the magic of the works by Leonardo, his teacher Andrea del Verrocchio, and his contemporaries during an in-depth tour of the Uffizi. Follow in his footsteps and move onto explore Florence’s town hall, The Palazzo Vecchio and unveil the history of the lost fresco of the Battaglia di Anghiari by the master himself.
Explore the Tuscan, Renaissance lands outside of Florence that Da Vinci was surrounded by, with a visit to Museo Leonardiano in Vinci and Anchiano, the house where Leonardo was born. Moving up to the rolling Montalbano Hills, where Leonardo took inspiration, guests can opt to trek on Monte Ceceri, where Leonardo tested his flying machines.
Whilst exploring Florence and the region of Tuscany, guests will be spoiled with the finest Tuscan villas.
Tuscany Now & More have compiled a couple of their most historical properties that are linked to the Leonardo da Vinci narrative. I Giullariis conveniently located by the San Donato a Scopeto Church, originally the home of Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Adoration of the Magi’, which has now been returned to the Uffizi after a major restoration. Meanwhile Podere Nuccioli is located in the area of Fiesole near Monte Ceceri, where Leonardo da Vinci experimented with his flying machines.
Stay atI Giullari
I Giullari is a beautifully restored farmhouse, part of a small hamlet where Galileo Gallilei once lived, just minutes from the busy city centre of Florence that can be reached by foot or by local public transport. Boasting a private pool & hot tub, air-conditioned bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, this villa is a supremely comfortable base from which to explore the marvels and joys of Florence. It is no surprise that the small hamlet, in which the villa is nestled, has been a prized location since the Renaissance. The views are awe-inspiring and blend traditional Tuscan hillsides with beautiful pockets of Florentine architecture settled amongst the olive groves and cypresses. The location perfectly blends both city and countryside.
Stay at Podere Nuccioli
Podere Nuccioli is a beautiful Tuscan villa boasting a private swimming pool, whitewashed interiors and original authentic features. Set on a hill side surrounded by olive groves with beautiful views of Fiesole, located just 15 mins from the centre of Florence, the house is encircled by an immaculately kept garden with never-ending views across the hills leading down into Florence.
