WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO:
The tour is an easy loop starting from the historical centre of the town where Leonardo Da Vinci was born.
The trails I’ll lead you through across the hills are basically made of ups and downs.
I’ll show you the charming little treasures of my village and I’ll lead you around the hills surrounding our little Tuscan gem, passing through olive trees and vineyards.
We’ll explore the places where the Genius spent the first years of his life, that treasure ancient mills, clear freshwater streams and secret ravines.
To enjoy our tour at its best, we’ll ride through secondary roads.
We can stop and have a snack “al fresco”, or if you prefer you could stop and visit the XII century castle that hosts the Museo Leonardiano or the Leonardo’ s birthplace in Anchiano, with the support of an official touring guide, that we can also arrange for you. We’ll visit a village of San Pantaleo, where Leonardo Da Vinci’s mother lived: that is the very same path she used to make every day to reach and feed his son, when he was a child. We will then leave San Pantaleo for going back to Vinci.
