Da Vinci Fortress For Sale


    A seafront fortress designed by Leonardo Da Vinci is available for public purchase by Lionard Luxury Real Estate. The fortress, located in Livorno, Tuscany, was briefly used as a dwelling by Da Vinci in 1502 and was later owned by Napoleon’s sister, Princess Elisa Bonaparte, in the 19th century. The fortress is just one of over 100 seafront properties in Lionard’s portfolio, which includes villas and castles for sale in the most exclusive Italian resorts. Other notable highlights in the portfolio include a tower home on the Amalfi Coast, originally built to withstand pirate attacks and a Coppedè-style castle on the Ligurian Riviera. The latter property was built in the early 20th century and is surrounded by an historic park.
