It's a fun way to get to know the city and its history a little better. The disadvantage is that Google Maps sometimes has some difficulty in locating you precisely because of all those high buildings and that you occasionally make extra meters back and forth, but otherwise it was also fun for our 8-year-old to do.

This game was very interesting and informative. Everything close by, great to walk to. Unfortunately, some sights are being renovated, so not easy to find. And some tasks a bit difficult, but thanks to the solve function you can just keep going. We thought it was great and can recommend it.

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.
