Travel Tips for Amboise

Nostalgia for Amboise

by Carmanah

My favourite part of Amboise was being able to visit the Clos Lucé, although a lot of it had to do with being with the right people at the right time. It was our first full day in France and we had just seen the Chateau de Chambord and were now admist Leonardo da Vinci's home goofing off in the garden. It was a bit surreal. I loved exploring Amboise on foot and walking with the class down through the streets between the main village and the Clos Lucé. There was something very romantic about it all, especially in October when everything in the Loire is so very picturesque.

Clos Luce

by Suet

This was Leonardo da Vinci's last home in France. He spent his last years here and died in his bed. This House and Gardens is well worth the visit. You all know that he was an exceptional man, gifted in many aspect with inventing, painting, sculpting, drawing etc, but probably don't realise exactly HOW gifted until you see this place.

There are working models of his inventions in the grounds and in the house itself. I liked the fact that you can walk round the gardens and sit on the benches provided. There are speakers hung in the trees which tell you in your own language the thoughts and conversations Leonardo had with his apprentice. It is a peaceful place, gives you time to sit and think about things.

Final Resting Place of Leonardo da Vinci

by wanderlust23

"In this place lies the remains of Leonardo DaVinci."

Da Vinci's final resting place is said to be in the small chapel on the castle grounds at Chateau d'Amboise. He was a good friend to King Francois I and helped design parts of his castles/palaces.

Manoir du Clos-Luce

by wanderlust23

Residence of Leonardo DaVinci during his time in Amboise. The house contains some original art, quotes, architectural drawings, a museum of his inventions, and computer aided graphics of some of his inventive drawings.

It was rumored that there was a secret tunnel between the castle in Amboise to the Manoir du Clos-Luce so that Leonardo could travel between the two unnoticed to visit his friend, King Francois I.

Château du Clos-Lucé: Le Parc, Part I

by von.otter

“You can have no dominion greater or less than that over yourself.”
— Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

In addition to the machine models that dot the landscape of Parc Léonardo da Vinci some the art by the genius of the Renaissance has been reproduced in a modern way and is on display.

Larger-than-life circular vinyl prints of da Vinci sketches have been hung from trees. With the light filtered through the trees these translucent reproductions take on an ethereal quality.

Etienne Le Loup, the favorite of Louis XI and owner of Clos-Lucé at one point, built a dovecote (see photo #4), which still stands at the bottom of the park. It could house 500 pigeons; it must have been a giant mess!
