The House of Da Vinci 3 is the final installment of the popular adventure game trilogy. It can get quite tricky at times, so this walkthrough guide should help if you get stuck. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.


Chapter 1, Catacombs, Sacra di San Michele 1508:

Chapter 2, Villa of Luca Pacioli, Northern Tuscany 1508:

Here’s the solution to the dials puzzle. You need to sort of draw the lines with the clock hands.

I’m still working on my own walkthrough for the rest of the game, but until then you can use the developer’s official walkthrough, below:

    I’m stuck in chapter 7: I can╬ô├ç├ût get the trap door to open. I moved the big wooden crane thing, brought down the hook, hooked it to the ring of the door, lifted the gizmo ╬ô├ç┬¬ and the hook goes up with nothing attached to it!
    I play on an iPad and have never had a problem before 🙁 Any idea?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I had that problem too at one point. What I did was quit to the main menu and then that fixed it.

    2. Anne

      You have to position the hook, then walk over to it and click on it to attach it to the trap door ring. I had the same confusion until I figured it out.

    IΓÇÖve been waiting for and enjoying The House of Davinci 3. I have got to chapter 4, but am totally stuck with the weapon that will shoot the scorched crosses on the map. Following your video, your weapon just shoots the 8 crossed maps. Mine has shot the 5 boxes across the top and the three on the right from the next row and no matter how many times I try again, it only shoots the same boxes. I cannot move forward and itΓÇÖs so frustrating . Been trying for a couple of days now and may have to abandon the game, but donΓÇÖt want to. Can you advise please. IΓÇÖd be so grateful.

    Stuck at refilling the crossbow with arrows. You are supposed to be able to do it at the work bench. I canΓÇÖt figure out how.

    1. ed

      Just got the game so a late reply. You need to be in the past and go to the crossbow and acquire the empty magazine which will then be in your inventory, then head to the workshop in the present and stick the empty magazine in the crank device and work the crank and it will replenish your arrows

      Vous allez à l étage inférieur Avec la carte et vous disposer les trois de la machine comme sur la carte à l étage

    3. Betty

      Take the empty wooden piece out of the crossbow. Put it back in the drawer in the workshop then move the lever several times to reload it. Then put it back in the crossbow.

  4. JD

    Thor. I spent a long time on the crossbow figuring out how to refill the arrows . Hope I can describe this properly, but I discovered that you need to go into the past and press on the wall behind behind the bow until the image changes, then go over the bridge and make an immediate left turn down the stone steps and then you can get into the workshop. The new arrows are in the left hand draw of the desk where you can refill.

    On completion of chapter 9 no time came up – on 1 and 2 House of da Vinci – time came up with the credits – anyone else had a problem

    1. Rick Dell

      The game ended very suddenly. It was a bit disappointing.

  6. Amy

    I feel disappointed by part 3- not nearly as fun as part 1 and 2 imo

  7. JD

    I canΓÇÖt move on from chapter 4 as cannot get the arrows to fire at only the crosses on the map. Every time I try it just keeps firing across the top row, then the first 3 right hand ones on the 2nd row. No thanks idea how to change it. The walkthrough video shows it doing it right the first time. What have I missed ?? Very frustrated . Can anyone advise please?

    1. Rick Dell

      JD, I replayed Chapter 4 up until the gun to test a theory.

      I found that if I printed just the top three targets on the “programming card” in the basement and fed that into the gun it would only shoot out those top three targets. I think you need to take out the card, go downstairs, wipe it clean and then put in the other targets but not the ones you already got. Hope this helps.

    2. Rick Dell

      IΓÇÖve tried replying before last week but apparently my response hasnΓÇÖt been approved.

      It sounds like the programming card that you load into the gun is incorrect. Take it out of the gun and go back downstairs to the press. Wipe the card clean, look at your journal and enter the pattern correctly.

      Put it back into the gun. You will need to prime it again doing the bellows step and flipping the little switch.

      Good luck.

    3. Dan

      The gun fires at the spots that you have pinched on the metal plate, and is limited ro a number of shots, so you have to wipe the punches off the card in the downstairs room, and punch the next set. 3 trips I think got all the spots cleared

  8. JD

    Is there no-one who can help me with The House of Davinci chapter 4 as my previous messages??

    1. Rick Dell

      JD, see my previous comment. I just confirmed that this works. Take out the targeting card (actually it ends up in your inventory). Take it downstairs, erase it, and put in the other targets. You will need to prime the gun again by pumping the bellows and flipping that little switch. Good luck!

      1. JD

        Rick, so sorry I didn’t see your answers. I wasn’t being rude. Thank you for responding. Reading your notes I wasn’t sure what you meant, but think I have just realised, so will see if it works for me and I have understood you properly. Many thanks. I hope I don’t need to come back….. 😜

  9. Jane

    IΓÇÖm stuck in Chapter 7 trying to replace the missing rail by the rail switch. I have hammered the rail straight, travelled into the past, as instructed, moved the switch lever to the left and hovered over the complete area but it wonΓÇÖt take the replacement rail

    1. JD

      Good luck getting an answer. I’ve ben trying but get one, but responses at all. Isn’t it frustrating on an otherwise very enjoyable game.

      1. Jane

        Got it finally! It would appear that you donΓÇÖt take the lever all the way to the left, stop just before and hey presto! Success, so onward I go!

        1. Tina

          DonΓÇÖt understand this still canΓÇÖt get it to fire below

          1. Kreed

            There are 3 positions to put the lever in. Left, middle, and right. You need to put the lever in the middle position

  10. Truwell

    Chapter 4: Nothing happens when I close the boiler hatch! The only hint available is ΓÇ£close the boiler hatch.ΓÇ¥ The resin is inside. I couldnΓÇÖt figure it out, so followed the developer walkthrough and IΓÇÖm not doing anything differently. Anyone else?

  12. Hollyhocks58

    On chapter 8 and completely stuck when trying to get the colours and images. Have watched the walkthrough but still canΓÇÖt complete it. Please help as itΓÇÖs so frustrating. Thanks

  13. Riet

    Chapter 3 I dit erase the metal card.
    I get the 8 shots the weapon is pointing all the targets but not firing the targets

  14. John Smith

    very disappointed in House of DaVinci 3. Parts too easy, others impossible. Not creative, riding on success of first 2 games. Probably last BB game I buy.

  15. lexxodus

    Hi. can someone tell me how many letters/notes there are in the game? I found 22? I need them all for the last two achievements I’m missing. I’ve searched through the game countless times but I must have missed something? who can help? or is it known that these achievements don’t work? The developers don’t give me an answer either, and I can’t find anything in the countless copy past walkthrough videos on you tube.

  16. Nanatk

    I am stuck on chapter 7. I accidently dropped the heavy weight on the trap door. It won’t let me pick it up again as it says it is too heavy.
    Has anyone any idea how I pick it up. Obviously I need it to drop on the bridge to I can move on.

    1. Wendy

      I am stuck there too

    2. Wendy

      I did the same thing

    3. Brian

      You should be able to lower the hook on the crane down to the weight, then focus on the weight nd guide the hook to the loop on it. at that point you can lift it back up with the crane

  17. Amanda

    Can anyone get the darn lantern in chapter 6 with the three images to work? I saw the walkthrough and couldn’t figure out the pattern. Even with the hints, it’s unclear. When I do Green, Red,Blue, then Blue Red , Green, etc., as it says, nothing happens.

  18. Amanda

    Sorry, the projector lantern thingy is in chapter 8.

  19. Sarah

    Sorry can’t find the extra bolts in Chapter 2 as per JD’s instructions….can’t anyone help?

  20. Chris

    I am in chapter 2. I shot down the bell but when I return to the present, there is one large jar in my way and I have no idea how to move it.Help

    1. Brian

      shoot all of the jars with the crossbow, I believe there are three. One to the left of the windmill, one all the way to the right in the weeds, and the one in front of the bell

  21. Ellie

    Chris – there are 4 jars – one waaaay to the right

  22. Kathlyn

    I really enjoy your walkthroughs – in divinci 3 the bald lady on your website the walkthrough is not complete – it’s more of a trailer – no game play – I tried chapter 4 but it seems to be alright. In bald lady I’m stuck on mixing the sulfur, saltpeter and coal?ingredients. I really hope I don’t have to restart the chapter. Can you help?
