Full description
You are invited to discover the captive souls, the spirits and the mysterious skeletons of Florence with an interactive city exploration game. You will be guided step-by-step to the cursed buildings where they carry out their eternal punishments while you learn all of their stories. Brace yourself and come explore Haunted Florence, all with the help of your smartphone. Each clue will lead you from one place to another, giving you exact directions, so you won’t need a map, a GPS or a guide. When you solve it and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked. Along the way, you’ll find stories of people sentenced to death who returned to haunt their executioner, discover the open hole that leads to Hell, see the building of trapped souls, and find out many other stories of the people who lived and died in those places. 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.

    Really great opportunity to explore the streets of Florence while always learning some history. Does take some thinking but is rewarding when you figure out the answers. Only downfall is one of the answers was blocked by construction. However, doing it at night made the city more special as it was all lit up.

    Good time !

    I had a good time doing this game! Some clues inaccessible due to works, including the first that must be found on a door of the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella. A clue was not found! The plaque at the entrance to the Basilica of San Lorenzo has been removed. I recognized the wall where she was sitting. A clue was also confused at the Ponte Vecchio level. Did you have to go to the other side of the bridge and go to the right or should we retrace our steps and go right? There, mystery because the penultimate clue is behind the statue. And finally, on the website, it is clear that the game is available in French and English, but once the app is downloaded, the game is only available in English. A little disappointed at this level.

    Best way to explore Florence!

    My girlfriend and I have been traveling all around Europe for a month and tried several different tours and activities but nothing was quite like this. Questo is by far my new favorite way to see the sights and learn secrets of the town. The scavenger aspect of it makes it much for entertaining to walk around and you end up focusing on many more details looking for small clues. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good time tourist or not. Excited to try out another one.
