Full description
After you buy the quest, receive a code which grants you access to the quest in the app (the app is free to download). Along the way, find the story of the most prolific executioner in Rome, discover the church of chained spirits, and see the woman who was cursed to lose her hands. Find out many other stories of the people who lived and died in these 10 places that you’ll visit. The quest can be played at any hour, but it is recommended that you try it at night, for the full haunted experience. It will take you from 1 to 2 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit, so you can finish it at your own pace. The total length is about 3.5 km. Each clue will lead you from one place to another, giving you exact directions, so you won’t need a map or GPS. When you solve it and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked. You won’t need a guide, just download the app, go to the starting point (Piazza del Popolo) and you’re ready to go on a city exploration adventure. For larger groups, 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.

We've visited Rome a few times, so were lookimg for something different to do. Really enjoyed this activity. It took us to hidden places we hadn't discovered before and gave us a new insight into the beautiful city. The game was great as we didn't need to go into places, so it's good to do at night. The story was very interesting and a little unexpected too! We'll definitely use this app in other cities we visit.

Very good way to discover the city. The story based on real people allows you to know a little more about Rome and its inhabitants! However, not necessarily being up to date, several of the puzzles were under construction, something to make the game a little more difficult! ;) If you manage in English, we do not recommend the French translation!

Nice way to get to know parts of Rome (neighborhoods and piazzas) in a fun way. Start at Piazza del Popolo. Beautiful. Especially nice to do in the evening. It is a pity that the tour ends in a place far away from all metro stations. And that is, especially in the evening, not convenient.
