Playing was fun and allowed us to learn more about the main interesting sites of Venice and discover less known sites that were interesting as well. The concept is excellent and could be improved, for example the player should be able to tell that the point of interest is not seeable at the moment and be able to continue the game.

Veniceis a nice place we were gladwe were able to visit. Our tour guide Rosella is very good, helpful and guided us from start o finish. Kudos to her!

A magnificent gateway in time. Remember to take a cable if you rent an audio guide And warm clothing in winter because the rooms are not heated.

Very good value for money. It allows you to visit a large number of museums and churches and thus to go around Venice. I recommend

It has many museums and attractions, it is totally worth buying it even if it is for a short time
