Leonardo Da Vinci spent the last three years of his life here in Amboise. The site of his manor house has a very pleasant trail through the woods. Along the trail are exhibits relating to the woods and Da Vinci’s works and experiments. His famous square-ish parachute hangs from a tree. His military tank was created full size and is a blast to play in. There are audio stations, as well as interpretive signs at each of the 12 interactive sites in the woods.
Favorite thing: A great setting for viewing art.
