Special Leonardo

The year 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci‘s death and the whole year will be dedicated to the Master both in Italy and abroad – follow #Leonardo500 to be updated -. For this occasion, Betania Travel realized a full package of tour proposals on the tracks of the Genius in Lombardy, to unveil his many abilities, discoveries and inventions that this eclectic personality has dealt with.

4 DAYS IN THE CITY OF THE GENIUS: 4-day inspiring trip on Leonardo’s footsteps in Milan

FOLLOWING LEONARDO… IN THE COUNTRYSIDE: Morimondo, Vigevano, Abbiategrasso. Enchanting places not far from Milan where the mark of Leonardo and its passage are still visible. Discover with us these charming places.

LEONARDO’S HERITAGE: The Last Supper, the Codex Atlanticus, the locks of the Naviglio Grande, and frescoes, paintings and many, many drawings. Precious are the traces that Leonardo da Vinci, architect, engineer, inventor, scientist, artist, left in the Ambrosian city during the twenty years of his stay. Here you can find a little taste.

IN THE KITCHEN WITH THE GENIUS: Let’s dive into the verdant countryside of Abbiategrasso, do shopping with us in the farmhouse and cook together an authentic medieval lunch with Leonardo’s recipes! And after tasting the lunch cooked by us, what better than a nice guided tour of the historic center of Abbiategrasso followed by the tasting of the famous “Besuschino”?

Following Leonardo in Lombardy

A 10 days journey in Lombardy, the Italian region where the Master has realized much of his works. Every day will be focused on one of the many disciplines the Renaissance Genius has worked about, from Science to Engineering, from Architecture to Painting… even Gastronomy! Leonardo’s works have literally shaped the Lombard landscape (which is the background of many of his most famous paintings), and some of his inventions are still functioning today. We’ll start from the Navigli, reach Lake Como and finish our journey in Milan, where we’ll celebrate together the Universal Genius.

What does Tourism mean to us?

Our agenda in Tourism is based on firm principles:

  • Sustainability – In our proposals, we safeguard and valorize the territory, taking care to the hosting community to avoid it feels “invaded” by the tourist.
  • Community – We believe communities are the main actors of the territory and, whenever it is possible, we include in our proposals meaningful experiences that involve the local administration and the social fabric.
  • Hospitality for everybody – Inclusiveness, accessibility, and valorization of the differences. Our tourism want to foster the largest fruition possible to the most of the people.
  • Experience – People, places, traditions and encounters. The tourist, as temporary resident, must know, meet, “chew” experiences
  • Sociability – We don’t give answer but inspire questions.


BETANIA Travel suggests destinations and itineraries and leaves to the interaction with the tourist the final composition of the trip, tailoring a unique, original and personalized experience. As the interaction between the tourist and hosting community is important to Betania, so it is relationship between the tourist and the travel agency, in order to create its own tailor-made.
