Padua: City Highlights Exploration Game

1. Padua: City Highlights Exploration Game

Discover Padua’s famous locations while playing the role of a supernatural traveler trying to uncover the use of magic in the city. As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. After you book a game, you will receive an email with instructions on how to download and play the game on your phone. Head to Prato della Valle, where the game will start. It will take you between 2 and 3 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit, so feel free to explore and finish it at your own pace. Pause the game and resume at any time from the location where you paused it. You will finish the game at the famous Bo Palace. 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 download and play the city game on their phone. Alternatively, each person can make their own purchase. You can play on your own, in a large group or in several smaller groups that compete against each other and meet at the final stop of the game.

Venice: Guided Night Walking Tour & Saint Mark's Basilica

2. Venice: Guided Night Walking Tour & Saint Mark's Basilica

With its awe-inspiring array of domes, arches and turrets, there is no mistaking St. Mark’s basilica. Dominating the piazza of the same name, St. Mark’s stands at the very epicentre of the city. And it looks even more spectacular at night. On our night tour of St. Mark’s, you’ll meet your guide in beautiful St. Mark’s Square, for centuries the spiritual and political centre of Venice - the Doge’s palace also stands silent watch over the piazza. To start our tour, your guide will explain the significance of the square to the history and geography of the city - for good reason Napoleon described the Piazza as the ‘drawing room of Europe,’ and the elegant cafes that line the square, including Caffe Quadri and famous Caffe Florian, have lost none of their old-world charm. During our time in the piazza we’ll learn about some of the other highlights on show here, including the stunning Torre dell’Orologio - a Renaissance clock tower decorated with fabulous sculptures, as well as St. Mark’s Campanile, the soaring 12th-century brick bell tower that is still the tallest building in Venice.

Our tour was very educational and beautiful! Our tour guide was patient, answered every question and very enthusiastic! She explained the art of the mosaic beautifully. We got to see the crypt of St. Mark as well as the pala d’ oro, a wonderful gem masterpiece in the 12th century. We went underground beneath the alter and saw possibly the originally stone of the church. The mosaics on the floor were one of the most beautiful artwork I’ve seen. Our tour guide had us imagine the times and helped you visualize what it took to make this beautiful basilica. From getting booty from the 4th crusades, to explaining the politics, religion and families that influence the church; the tour was simply amazing!

This is a great way to explore a city at your own pace and with the added element of making it in to a game. The clues are quite simple so not over taxing or complicated and so I think this works for both couples and families.

Fun game even if only in English, I read some curiosities and it took me to places I would not have visited just by walking. I want to try it for another city!

Very extensive explanation about Padova and about the aperol and its differences, looked up nice tents, tasty snacks that we did not know yet, nice guide

Nice way for everyone, with or without children, to explore the city.
