He wrote about his experiences during these years which are captured in his famous book Il Milione, dictated during his imprisonment in Genoa to the Pisan writer Rustichello, his fellow prisoner, and also the first information about this then unknown world. Walk through the small “calle” we make our way towards the sestiere of San Marco to get to know the places frequented by Giacomo Casanova's in his childhood and youth, such as the house where he was born and the theatre where his parents worked, where he spent long hours learning the difference between fantasy and reality and where his love for music was born.

A nice idea and well done! Our children (18, 10) were very eager and tinkered when we parents could no longer do it. The walkways were accepted without a murmur. A tip for users: It was a bit inconvenient for us that we went from St. Mark's Square to the starting point of the rally, because we then walked all the way back with the game (which you don't know beforehand). Depending on what you are planning to do in Venice, you should schedule the game as a solitaire in the morning or afternoon. It lasts quite a while without getting boring and is absolutely exciting and solvable.

Everything was great and worked well. An example with no dots initially to show how to approach the puzzles would be helpful. We used the 1st landmark as a sample and viewed the result to see how to proceed. Experienced puzzlers may not need this.

Pleasant way to explore the city in a different way. Above all, you can do the tour at your own pace and get a lot of the city. Booking and how to start is well described and you can start right away.

Very nice done in the evening after dinner few people around. It would be nice to do it in any city

Very nice way to see the most important places in Venice.
