The treasure hunt takes you to the most beautiful spots in the city, but some puzzles, such as 9, are unclear. Very good the fact that you can get around the city at your own pace.

A great way to explore Florence. The puzzles are nice ones to solve and we didn’t get tired at all because we went on our own pace. We learned about history and discovered beautiful scenery! Totally recommend! I will buy it again in my next trip!
