    Important information

    Know before you go

    • This is a self-guided city discovery experience. There is no tour guide that will join your urban adventure. No one will wait for you at the meeting/starting point. All you need for your exploration will be written in your email from the tour operator
    • Games are available in English only
    • There’s a few rules to the games - and we’ll remind you of them before playing, but just so you know: every riddle is made up of (cryptic) directions and a question. To answer the question, you can try as many answers as you like. If you’re stuck, you can ask for a hint or skip a riddle

    In addition to St. Mark's Square and the surrounding area, you discover many corners that you might have overlooked and learn a lot about the history of the individual points The puzzles are not that difficult;)
