Through the scavenger hunt we saw a lot of Genoa. Some of the riddles weren't always very clear, but this didn't really matter, since there is help or you can skip a riddle. We enjoyed it.

Super well designed hunt, gives purpose to the visit of the city. The monuments on offer are just breathtaking. I highly recommend, Genoa being a magnificent city in the center.

A lot of fun to do. You come to places you might not otherwise come and with the puzzles in between you look at the buildings differently.

This was a lot more fun for all of us than just going from one sight to another. If you like puzzles, you should try it.

Really well done! A new and fun way to visit the city for young and old.
