In Amboise, in the Loire Valley, it was at the Château du Clos Lucé, at the invitation of François 1er, that Leonardo da Vinci lived the last years of his life and devoted himself to the culmination of his inventions and the study of major projects for the King, before dying there on May 2, 1519.
Discovering all the worlds of Leonardo da Vinci at the Château du Clos Lucé in 3 stages:
. The castle allows you to enter the intimacy of Leonardo da Vinci's place of life. We discover his apartments, the Renaissance rooms and his newly restored workshops. An exhibition of inventions imagined by the Italian artist on the themes of military engineering, urban planning, mechanics, flying machines and hydraulics is also presented to visitors.
. The park retraces all the passions of Leonardo, developed by the study and understanding of nature, through a landscaped route dedicated to the discovery of the knowledge of the Italian master, staged by 20 giant interactive machines, 8 sound terminals and 40 translucent canvases.
. New: the Château du Clos Lucé continues its mission of restoring the worlds of Leonardo da Vinci in a new cultural and museum space. The public discovers, through an immersive and interactive visit, two major facets of Leonardo da Vinci's know-how: painting and architecture.
This ticket does not include temporary exhibitions, boat trips or guided tours.

J'ai visité le château du Clos Lucé avec mes petits enfants, ils ont adoré. Le parc est vraiment bien pensé. Les billets coupes files présentent un vrai avantage et nous ont fait gagner un temps précieux. Merci.
