Full description
Take part in this Carnival treasure hunt in Venice discover historical gems hidden around the city!

On this amazing treasure hunt, discover the secrets of the Venice Carnival. Using the mobile app on your phone, follow a detailed map around the labyrinth of narrow Venetian streets. The app will be your personal storyteller. From Piazzale Roma, cross the imposing Rialto bridge to reach Saint Mark’s Square, the heart of the Venice Carnival.

During the hunt, take a picture of at least 3 points highlighted on the map. At the end, the treasure will be yours: one carnival mask ready to be painted with an artist. A professional mask-maker will happily give you some suggestions to personalise it. On the map, you'll see 4 hidden places to take a picture of. Show a picture for at least 3 of the places to the mask-maker to receive your prize.

The ending location, guarding your treasure, is worth your special attention. Everybody know or have ever heard about Casanova, right? According to many Venetian legends, Casanova was imprisoned in this historic palace, which is part of the Doge’s Palace. The two buildings are connected by the well-known Bridge of Sighs. At the end, you will reach the Prison Palace where you'll decorate your own carnival mask.
