About Leonardo's life in Milan


Leonardo da Vinci lived in Milan many years at the service of the duke of Milan. During this tour you'll learn about his life in Milan, his studies and inventions.

The monument of Leonardo in La Scala Opera House celebrate him and introduce you to the story of his life. In the Museum Leonardo3 you'll see some Leonardo's working models of his machines and digitalized restorations of his paintings.
You'll be also surprised to know that in Milan there is still part of a Vineyard which was owned by da Vinci. It is located inside the garden of a charming Renaissance Age, the Atellani family, one of the few Reneissance houses in Milan.

This is by the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, well-know for the architecture by Donato Bramante, but also because of Leonardo's "Last Supper". It's really hard to find these tickets, that should be booked at least three months before. I suggest you get the tickets by yourself, if possible. *Please, contact me for further information.

The tour will end by the Sforza's Castle
