In these 2-3 hours you have seen everything. Some of the puzzles are difficult because the instructions do not match the solution. Equally important, don't click the 1/2/3 wheels for no reason, as these are the clues and points will be deducted for doing so. Just a change from a normal sightseeing tour!

A nice cheap pastime in Bologna. You see alleys, paths and squares that you wouldn't otherwise see. I will also book in other cities.
