Immerse yourself in the history of Clos Lucé
with the thematic guided tours
- Eight audio installations around the park recreate Leonardo da Vinci’s thoughts in English, French, Italian and German. For the hearing impaired, the transcripts of the audio installations are available from the ticket office.
We would like to inform visitors that restoration work is underway in the Communes building on the Renaissance Terrace, which will have no impact on the usual tour, as all of Le Clos Lucé's visitor areas will remain accessible. We look forward to seeing you!
