If you and your kids want to discover more secrets of Florence why don’t you choose our Scavenger Hunt Tour. This adventure is not a classic guided tour, but a ‘technological’ version of the classic Treasure Hunt, a fun game through the streets of Florence competing against the clock! This activity has been designed to engage both adults and kids in their discovery of Florence, its curiosities and best-kept secrets. Your guide will give you a map of the city and the hunt booklet including a series of riddles about the most important monuments of Florence as well as its history and art. When you think you have found the right answer, you will take a picture of it with your cell phone! Once you have collected all the clues, you will show them to your local guide and see if you have won the prize!
Did you know that a portrait of the Florentine Dante Alighieri, the greatest Italian poet, is hidden on the floor near his house? How many statues can you find within view of the Signoria Square? And why did the artists forget to put clothes on their statues? Let me help you find the self portrait that a famous sculptor hid on his statue of Perseus in one of the main squares of Florence! These are examples of riddles in our scavenger hunt tour.
If you and your kids want to discover more secrets of Florence, let me guide you on an exciting scavenger hunt through one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. A fun experience that combines learning and entertainment. Your kids will be bewitched by the fascinating stories of Greek and Roman mythology and they will enjoy themselves trying to spot the many heroes and gods whose statues are displayed in Signoria Square. Walking over Ponte Vecchio, they will have the challenging task to count the exact number of jewellery shops and find a well concealed centuries-old clock!
Wear comfortable shoes, have your mobile phone ready for taking photos that will be required during the hunt and enjoy yourself! Ready, steady…Go!
