In the footsteps of Leonardo along the Strada Verde
From the village of Vinci to the birthplace of the genius

Looking for something to do outdoors that’s fun for the whole family? Did you know that in Tuscany you can easily combine outdoor recreation with cultural explorations? Vinci, the birth town of Leonardo, is just one of many regional examples. Near the historic center you’ll find his original home, which can be reached on foot via a nature path known as the Strada Verde. Walking for just about 3 kilometers (round trip), following the wooden signs, you’ll arrive in the small town of Anchiano, where the artist-scientist-architect-engineer was born on April 15, 1452.

This hiking itinerary can be followed throughout the year, but we encourage trying it out during milder seasons, such as autumn and spring.
