Full description
Discover the top attractions and landmarks in Siena in a unique way by playing a city exploration game on your smartphone. Visit some of Siena's most famous sites, such as the Palazzo Tolomei, Fonte Gaia, and Piazza del Duomo. Download Questo, the gamified travel app, onto your smartphone, and begin your exciting exploration game. Assume a role in an ancient political fight between the Salimbeni and Tolomei families. Take part in a historical struggle for the control of Siena, and fight for the cause of a third family, the Terrazini. Find out secrets about the Salimbeni and Tolomei families that you can use to harm them. Stay out of the spotlight, and provoke the two families to start a war against each other. Solve a clue to reveal exact directions to your next stop on the tour, without the need of a map, GPS, or a physical guide. Each solution reveals a secret story about Siena's main attractions, such as the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the second oldest bank in the world. Complete the tour at your own pace, and pause and restart the tour whenever you please. After purchasing the quest, an access code will be delivered to your email, which can then be used in the downloadable app. If you are a large group, 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.

The route is well described and passes beautiful sights. The story and the questions were too difficult for our 7-year-old son. We also dropped out with some questions and amount of text. Think that older children and groups of friends really enjoy this to discover the city in a playful way.

It was a lot of fun. It takes a little patience for the apps to download and for the whole thing to work, but it made for a great family experience. Age-related: Children who want to actively participate must be able to read (in the case of Siena also English). The historical part may have to be adapted to age. It was totally perfect for our children (December 14th) and for us parents!

Valid exploration game, an alternative and fun way to visit the city while solving the puzzles. Simple but not trivial puzzles. Recommended experience, also considering the low cost.
