In the fall of 1516, Leonardo da Vinci, aged 64, accepted Francis the first's invitation and crossed the Alps on the back of a mule. In big leather saddlebags, he brought "Mona Lisa", "Virgin and Child with Sainte-Anne" and his "Saint John the Baptist" (all three at the Louvre today) but you will see excellent copies on spot (and you'll see Mona far better than at the Louvre!). Everybody knows Leonardo da Vinci but what do we know about him? Not that much... Well, you'll be happy to hear that... it can be arranged! And that's the best place to do it. Beautiful house and estate (still privately owned by a very distinguished family!), beautiful park with unusual settings and decorations illustrating some of Leonardo's (attributed) inventions while seducing the child still inside us (or real kids!).
