The Renaissance in Amboise

Delve into History, even the lunch is Renaissance!
Description

FREE VISIT OF THE CHÂTEAU DU CLOS LUCÉ IN AMBOISE 10H00
Inhabited by Leonardo da Vinci for the last three years of his life, the residence has preserved many rooms: his bedroom, his kitchen, his office... From his native Tuscany until his death at Le Clos Lucé on May 2, 1519, Leonardo da Vinci tried to unlock the secrets of nature and physics that served as the basis for his work. The castle offers the public a synthesis of Leonardo's work, even in its park where some machines have been reconstructed.

Sieur Sausin, Maistre queux, welcomes you to the 15th century Priory with its Renaissance rooms and terrace in the heart of the green park. He offers you "many gousié amusements", based on Renaissance recipes.
