The small hill town from which Leonardo da Vinci derived his name is a short drive or bus ride north of Empoli. At the church of Santa Croce, near the town square, you can see the baptismal font in which Leonardo was baptized. But if you want to see the house where he was born, you'll have to travel to Anchiano, 3 km (2 miles) north of Vinci. Though it's somewhat of a tourist trap, a trip to Vinci is worth the effort for the views alone.
