Full description
Discover the top attractions and landmarks in Siena in a unique way by playing a city exploration game on your smartphone. Visit some of Siena's most famous sites, such as the Palazzo Tolomei, Fonte Gaia, and Piazza del Duomo. Download Questo, the gamified travel app, onto your smartphone, and begin your exciting exploration game. Assume a role in an ancient political fight between the Salimbeni and Tolomei families. Take part in a historical struggle for the control of Siena, and fight for the cause of a third family, the Terrazini. Find out secrets about the Salimbeni and Tolomei families that you can use to harm them. Stay out of the spotlight, and provoke the two families to start a war against each other. Solve a clue to reveal exact directions to your next stop on the tour, without the need of a map, GPS, or a physical guide. Each solution reveals a secret story about Siena's main attractions, such as the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the second oldest bank in the world. Complete the tour at your own pace, and pause and restart the tour whenever you please. After purchasing the quest, an access code will be delivered to your email, which can then be used in the downloadable app. If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

De route is goed omschreven en komt langs mooie bezienswaardigheden. Het verhaal en de vragen waren te lastig voor onze zoon van 7. Ook wij haakten bij sommige vragen en hoeveelheid tekst wat af. Denk dat oudere kinderen en vriendengroepen dit erg leuk vinden om de stad spelenderwijs te ontdekken.

Hat total Spaß gemacht. Es braucht zwar etwas Geduld, bis die Apps herunter geladen sind und das Ganze funktioniert, aber es hat uns ein tolles Familienerlebnis ermöglicht. Vom Alter her: Kinder, die selbst aktiv mitmachen wollen, müssen lesen ( im Fall von Siena auch Englisch) können. Den geschichtlichen Teil muss man gegebenenfalls ans Alter anpassen. Für unsere Kinder (14.12) und für uns Eltern hat’s total gepasst!

Heel leuk om op deze manier door de stad te struinen, en je bezig te houden met hele andere zaken (gebouwen, steegjes, beelden, etc) dan de gemiddelde toerist. Sommige puzzels waren wel even zoeken. Ook leuk voor kinderen die kunnen lezen en schrijven.
