a fun afternoon. We discover the city differently, we can take the time to stroll in the shops or have a drink between two stages because there is no time constraint. Another way to discover a city.

Beautiful city tour, the walking distances are not far. cute puzzles. Unfortunately, the last station was closed off by a festival, but we were still able to solve the puzzles

Well done overall, the game worked technically flawlessly and kept us busy throughout the afternoon. a few more stations would be nice (e.g. Basilique Notre Dame...).

It was very good to discover the city while learning a bit of its history :)
