amboise et clos lucé

fun-filled first excursion today with the bucknell en france group: first to amboise, a onetime residence for french royalty, and then to clos lucé, leonardo da vinci's home for the last three years of his life. lots of snow at amboise then, miraculously, beautiful perfect-for-picture-taking sunlight at clos lucé.
the quaint and slightly dreary view from the courtyard outside amboise.
the chapel at amboise where leonardo da vinci is buried.
pretty chapel ceilings.
colorful amboise bedroom.
da vinci's last home.
pretty windows with heart cutouts.
one of the towers surrounding amboise.
gorgeous sunset — seems to be a trend in my travels!
view of amboise from the other side of the bridge.
