Full description
Be led on an exciting self-guided tour around Bologna's Old Town while playing a mobile-based quest with your friends and family. Solve clues and discover the fascinating history behind the monuments and attractions. Download the app, go to the starting point, and begin the adventure. Follow clues that will take you back in time to learn about the origins of some of the city's most iconic buildings and tourist sites. Here's a sneak peek at the storyline: “You’re an emerging writer from London, whose debut novel was a success. But now writers’ block has struck. The year is 1815. [...] In your despair, you’ve come to Bologna. You heard the city’s many secrets and artistic flair inspire many artists. You hope to be next...." Unlock the secret stories of the places you visit as you solve the problem and guess the answers. Learn about the seven secrets that cloak Bologna in mystery, the streets of the Quadrilatero, and more. Use the clues to lead you from one site to another. Each clue provides you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. Complete the tour in about 1.5 hours, however, there’s no time limit, allowing you to go at your own pace. Play as a group or 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 of the tour.

We liked the riddle tour through Bologna because we came to many places that we might not have discovered. We also encountered some peculiarities. Unfortunately it was only in English. So we didn't understand making and couldn't solve some puzzles.

This was amazing!! Different way to learn about this city! We walked to so many streets and learnt things that we wouldnt have the chance otherwise. We were impressed from the quality of the application! Good job guys!

The idea, story and facts are interesting what it lacks is a trail/route map. Pop up map is not too helpful and only pinpoints the location. Would have been nice to see the actual trail/route which would have made the whole experience more enjoyable and fun. We had to quit the game in early stages as it was not clear enough the route we had to continue on. Also, would have been nice if there were different route options e.g. red for long (1.5hrs), blue for shorter (1hr) and green for shortest (45min).
