Excursion from Florence to Vinci

Vinci is a small but charming town, which produced the world’s greatest genius – Leonardo da Vinci. The house of Leonardo’s father, where he spent his childhood years still stands there. Today it functions as a museum. The house is located in a picturesque place, surrounded by olive groves, and the oldest olive trees still remember the curious boy. Vinci has a museum, where the inventions of Leonardo were recreated from his drawings and sketches.
