I’ve always known that Leonardo Da Vinci was a significant historical figure, but I didn’t realise how brilliant and intelligent he was until I visited a town he was named after, Vinci, in Italy.

We started off the day exploring Leonardo Da Vinci’s museum….and it was a true eye opener. It’s a great hands on museum, as there were lots of miniature machines and contraptions that he invented. There were also stairs you could walk up that took you straight to the very top of the building, and it was a beautiful, panoramic view of the city.

After all that exploring, it was time to feed our bellies, so we decided to find some lunch. We left the museum and walked out down the road and followed our noses…we came across a nice restaurant. We sat down in the outdoor seating, we noticed a huge tree that was in the centre protruding through the roof of the outdoor eating area….what a nice setting for some lunch.

We tried a few dishes: the seafood salad starter was delectable. The seafood was very fresh and soft. We also had some smoked fish carpaccio – and the smoky flavour and texture of the fish was amazing. I finished off with a main of seafood pasta – it was a rich, flavoursome dish, one of the best seafood pastas I’ve ever had.

The only thing I regret is forgetting to write down the name of the restaurant, but I guess the next time I visit Vinci, I could always retrace my footsteps from the museum, and look out for a restaurant with a big tree…
