Know more about the life and the works of the greatest genius of all times with our guided tour of the Leonardo Da Vinci museum!
Florence has been the home of one of the greatest geniuses of history. Our private tour focuses on the Florentine years of Leonardo da Vinci. Born in the hamlet of Vinci in 1452, he lived in Florence, not far from the Duomo, and did many of his scientific studies in this city. He was a scientist, painter, architect, inventor, botanist, engineer and he also wrote poems! His manuscripts with drawings are kept in the most important libraries all around the world and his paintings are preserved in some of the greatest world museums. Leonardo’s tour aims to give you the big picture of his multiple studies through an accurate visit of Leonardo Da Vinci Museum.
Leonardo’s studies and inventions are even more incredible considering that it was a time when modern science was not yet born and the geographical discoveries were just starting to model a different idea of the world.
Leonardo’s Museum houses models of his most surprising machines built in real size, such as war machinery and building-site machinery, many of which can be tested by visitors. Leonardo had a real passion for nature which was to him an incredible source of wonder, that is why he studied it in all its countless forms with the aim, sometimes, to control it as when he produced innovative cartographic surveys and studied how to divert and regiment water courses.
He went nuts for optics and perspective experiments as well as for very different fields of study, such as the human anatomy. During our tour of Leonardo’s Museum, you will see some reproductions of his anatomical studies which were the result of the many dissections of corpses that he did in the Santa Maria Nuova hospital of Florence and that witness his deep knowledge of the human body.
Moreover, his brilliant mind couldn’t surrender to the fact that men couldn’t fly, so he produced many flight studies and designed flying machines (although his flight experiments were not exactly a success!).
If like me, you are fascinated by beautiful minds, choose the tour of Leonardo’s museum and test his inventions! This guided tour is particularly suitable for kids, as they will love touching and testing the machineries and learning about the life and the works of the Greatest Genius of all times!
