Said clo loosay. The castle is more of a stately home and the final home of Leonardo Da Vinci. His creations have been brought to life throughout the gardens in giant size. There are nice picnic areas available in the garden so bring a picnic lunch, or go to one of the many lovely bistros nearby…

The childhood home of Francois 1er and where the king invited Leonardo da Vinci to live. He died here in 1519 and is buried in a small chapel on the terrace of the Chateau of Amboise. Clos Lucé has scale reproductions of Leonardo's many inventions, created by IBM engineers.

Castle
“This graceful riverside castle was the home to French kings and final resting place of Leonardo Da Vinci. We recommend combining with a visit to Clos Luce 250 metres up the road, or a visit to Chenonceau 20 mins away. The village has lovely restaurants and bistros nestled around the base of the castle.”

Garden
“This graceful chateau bridges a river and has been continuously owned and inhabited by women. The furnishings and gardens are amazing. We love the audio guide as it is narrated by a previous owner and gives you a real feeling of what it was like to live there. It is the most visited castle in the Loire Valley, with good reason, so go early and expect crowds. ”

Aquarium
“Lorsque vous aurez terminé de visiter Amboise, n’hésitez pas à vous arrêter au Grand Aquarium de Touraine à Lussault-sur-Loire (à 10 minutes de là), le plus grand aquarium d’eau douce en Europe. Des sources de la Loire aux eaux douces tropicales, vous pourrez découvrir des milliers d’espèces des quatre coins du monde : piranhas, truites, silures, etc. Un bassin tactile vous permettra d’admirer et de faire connaissance avec de superbes carpes Koï. Ouvert tous les jours, le tarif adulte est à 14 euros. Il vous est possible de prendre des billets combinés avec le parc Mini-Châteaux, et de visiter les deux pour 22 euros.”

Castle
“This romantic castle is set on an island in the middle of a river. They have fun animations in the rooms. We recommend a stop at nearby Chateau de la Grille for a wine tasting on your way past.”
