Retracing the epic journey of Leonardo da Vinci, from Italy to France
Leonardo da Vinci embodies the genius of the Renaissance. In 1516, three years before his death, he crossed the Alps. Carrying his masterpieces like the Mona Lisa, he travelled on a mule and on foot from Italy to Amboise, in France's Loire Valley. We retrace part of his 2,000-kilometre-long epic journey to meet the French king.
