19. VAL-DE-LOIRE: Amboise

First things first… Sunday in Amboise is farmers market day… LE DIMANCHE À AMBOISE, C’EST MARCHÉ!
Walking to the market… charming little streets… lovely Loire… most delicious strawberries with a hint of fraisier des bois… fromage de chevre… saucisses… pâté… bread… local specialties… rillette and rillons…hmmm… the unforgettable strawberries 🙂

Living like locals in beautiful Amboise… walking to Clos Lucé… enjoying the amazing park with some of Leonardo’a models… like a playground… it is so much more than we remember from a long time ago… playing and learning… a magical afternoon!
Adding to the magic… the newly-restored tapestry of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, commissioned by Francis I, is travelling to the Château du Clos Lucé from the Vatican Museum… beauty!

The afternoon feels too short… continuing the Amboise magic at Leonardo’s Point of View… amazing view… a place to cherish… and stay for longer… enjoy slowly… between two rivers…
