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.

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.

Nice experience! We started the adventure at 7 p.m. and finished it at 9 p.m., taking all our time to take a good look at the city between two puzzles. The proposed story puts us in the shoes of a ghost who is looking for his identity. As the story progresses, we learn a little more, until the happy ending. I won't reveal more, but the route is really good, both in terms of the context offered and the sites visited! Experience to repeat in other cities!

We loved the idea of this game. Also because our 13-year-old likes it a bit scary. That's why we really only started when it got dark. However, that made one or the other station a bit difficult, because you could have visited the inside, for example, but it was already closed or you needed a good cell phone zoom to decipher something on the boards. But by being able to get hints, all tasks could be solved well. (The hints are free - I didn't really realize that at first.) The app is very easy to use. The stories that can be read in between were slightly creepy and funny. The route itself was well chosen with hidden corners and due to the start in the dark we had really great illuminated scenery of fountains and buildings. Unfortunately, 3 stations were difficult to access due to construction sites but were easy to solve thanks to the hint. We definitely recommend this tour.
