A fantastic tour and relaxing way to see many of the sights around Rome we wouldn’t have made it to on foot. Our guide was very knowledgeable and stopped at many focal points for us to get out and take a short walk to enjoy. We could go at our own pace and stay to enjoy a place or if too crowded, leave and venture onward. This tour was our favorite by far and would highly recommend. We had younger kids and teenagers and it was a hit with all of them.

Leonardo's treasure hunt @mostradileonardo Wonderful experience, 10 and praise! Arianna and her parents had a great time through the streets of Rome equipped with a tablet with a map and challenge points. Upon returning to the museum, the addresses collected made it possible to reveal the treasure. Bravissimi, nice idea!

A great way to discover Rome! The children (7 and 10 years old) and parents liked it very much. Nice discoveries with the concept of points to win with photos to take, to discover the treasure in the museum. Really great!

Highly recommended! You come to places that you would otherwise just pass by. However, we had far too little time: three hours is too short to carry out all the assignments.

Interesting, cultural and exciting activity!! We enjoyed it very much!!
