Excellent idea

The idea was excellent, even if between the stages of the route, one that included the existence of a bookshop or library, it had no obvious response since the place was closed at that house and the sign did not give any clues, but for the rest, a lot of fun.

By the end of the game we were frustrated and exhausted. At least it lead us near old Rome where our evening Colosseum tour was which was handy.
