Home / Day Trips from Florence / Vinci


Vinci is a small village about an hour from Florence by car (see map below), and most famous as the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci. The town is surrounded by hills with the typical Tsucan landscape of vineyards and olive groves that are much the same as in Leonardo's time.

There is a little piazza with an installation by Italian artist Mimmo Paladino which we thought was interesting the day we visited.
