Nice thing, was a lot of fun with interesting puzzles. Some are easier, some heavier, but that's what the help is for. The respective locations are about 10 minutes apart and you can pass all the important sights and learn something about them. I would do it again anytime. Attention: The number of players means how many people load the game onto their own mobile phones in order to solve it as a group. You can also use 1 mobile phone, but you pay at least for 2 people.

Great way to explore the City, some riddles are hard, but that is part of the fun. The story is also quite nice! It took us with a small break around 3 hours, tho.

Lovely way to see the main sites at your own pace. We only had one day in Bologna so wanted to make the most of it and this scavenger hunt was just fabulous.

Brilliant way to learn about and explore the city at your own pace. Myself and my partner had an absolute blast completing this throughout the city

Great game. Very motivating to visit the city at your own pace and see the main monuments. Excellent game to play with teenagers!
