As you explore Leonardo’s Vineyard, immerse yourself in the lifestyle of Leonardo da Vinci. Enjoy an included digital guide of Milan. Leonardo’s Vineyard was gifted to him in 1498 by Ludovico Sforza, a former Duke of Milan, who assigned him the task of creating The Last Supper. The Vineyard soon became one of Leonardo’s most admired possessions. With a long list of winemakers in his family, he enjoyed growing his own grapes and creating his own wines for many years to follow. When he left his residence in Milan, he continued to care for the vineyard and even generously left it in his will to two of his servants. Today, visitors can rediscover this hidden gem either on an Italian or English guided tour, led by a knowledgeable local guide.

Beautiful visit in which, in addition to the historical aspects relating to the city of Milan, you can learn about particular situations from the life of the Lords and Leonardo da Vinci. Sometimes certain aspects pass in minor interest but it is absolutely worth it. I strongly recommend this experience.
