Interaction with guests
We live on site, so we are always available in case of problems, to give advice, or just for a chat if our guests wish to learn more about the local area or the olive oil production. We like to interact with our guests, to learn more about them but we are very careful not to disturb their privacy. Some of our cats are also very friendy and they are expert in PR. As for the donkeys they like to let our guests know that they are there and that they are welcome to go and pet them...but mind the fingers

About the neighbourhood
Vinci has 2 museums dedicated to the life and works of Leonardo and from April to June there are 'Lectures' and cultural events to celebrate its most illustrious citizen.

During summer there are village fairs and 'sagre' with many different events, fireworks, a chance to sample local produce and good food.

Other important events of the agricultural calendar are the vine harvest in September and the olive harvest from October to December.
If you like the finer things in life you may wish to sample S.Miniato truffles, Empoli artichokes as well as brigidini from Laporecchio, wafers from Montecatini and chocolate from the local master chocolatiers.
Getting around
The closest railway station is Empoli (12 Km from Vinci) which has good connections to Florence, Pisa and Siena.
We always recommend to take the train to get to Florence because of the traffic and the difficulty of finding parking, moreover the main station in Florence is set in the middle of the city.
Other towns or villages can be reached by car: Lucca, Pistoia, Certaldo, S.Gimignano, Volterra, Montecatini,etc.

If you are intending to drive down from Florence airport, you should exit the airport by using the Via Termine which becomes Via Giovanni Luder.Continue on this road, which then joins up with the Viale Gori.Stay on this road until you see a turn off on your right which is the continuation of Viale L.Gori.This road then becomes the Viadotto Indiano.Follow along this road for some time until you see the blue sign indication for SGC Firenze-Pisa-Livo...
