Vinci is located in the province of Florence and is surrounded by the Tuscan countryside. The hills around Vinci belong to Montalbano and are characterized by olive groves and vineyards of great value. The town of Vinci is located 97 meters above sea level and has a beautiful historic center. Florence is 45 miles away, 25 from Pistoia, 48 from Lucca and 47 kilometers from San Gimignano. The Vinci area is crossed by the River Arno and is therefore part of the area called Lower Valdarno.
The Castle of the Counts Guidi
soars above the town with its high stone tower. Today the castle houses the Museum of Leonardo related to the famous Leonardo da Vinci, who was born and lived in this small town. In addition to the Leonardo Museum, we suggest that you go to see the house of Leonardo and to walk around the historic town of Vinci where you can find many works inspired by the writings and inventions of Leonardo. Among these, for example, you can admire the work in wood 'L'Uomo di Vinci' by Mario Ceroli inspired by the Vitruvian man. The sculpture is located in the square behind the Leonardo Museum.
The Casa di Leonardo is not in the historic center of Vinci, but in a small neighboring village: Anchiano. Anchiano is approximately 3 km from Vinci. The house is open to the public and also houses a museum. To reach the house you go down a road called the Green Road for the beauty of its hilly landscape with olive trees and vineyards.
