It was in Milan where Leonardo spent a long and fruitful time of his life as an artist. The city of Milan still treasures some of his works. On our tour of Leonardo da Vinci we will immerse you in the cultural climate in which he lived and worked in order for you to fully understand his artistic choices.
There is no better place to start than at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, a treasure chest that displays the Portrait of a Musician and the Atlantic Codex by Leonardo da Vinci. The Codex is a stunning collection of studies and drawings that gives the measure of Leonardo's genius. He was a man curious about everything and for whom no aspect of reality was indifferent.
Our guide Valeria was terrific! She knew Leonardo's life and artworks probably better than his mom :-)
As we continue on we find Leonardo's unmistakable personality is also present in the Sala delle Asse of the Castello Sforzesco, where his boundless curiosity for reality becomes evident.
Another stop on the discovery of Leonardo's Milan is at Santa Maria delle Grazie, a Renaissance jewel where he worked closely with another artistic genius, Donato Bramante.
"WE LOVED IT!"
"My fiance' is a history buff and loves Leonardo's works.
I wanted to give him a gift for his birthday and i booked the Leonardo tour with tours of Milan.
Our guide Valeria was terrific! She knew Leonardo's life and artworks probably better than his mom :-).
We enjoyed our tour so much that we hired Valeria the next day to see the Last Supper and The cathedral.
We will definetely recommend her and tours of milan to all our friends visiting this charming city." Therese S., Toronto, Canada
