What people are saying about Piazza Colonna

I gave the treasure hunt + exhibition to my grandson (10 years old). He was thrilled! The staff who welcomes at the entrance to the exhibition are very friendly and with the right enthusiasm they give indications on how the treasure hunt works and how to use the tablet made available. The hunt is timed but, in any case, it allows you to walk around Rome in search of clues and enjoying / discovering unexpected glimpses of Rome and curiosities related to them. The exhibition, which can be visited at the end of the treasure hunt, presents various machines of the great genius, which can also be touched to understand how they work. Suitable for curious children / teenagers who love to have fun ... willing and / or used to walking for 3 hours!

The idea is very good, and everything worked out at the beginning, but then unfortunately there was a problem with the network connection and we had to cancel the tour. The on-site organizer immediately reimbursed us for the costs in full without a dispute and invited us to the museum with an audio guide. Technical problems can always happen. Should we ever come to Rome again we will be happy to try again because the part we started was really nice!

The treasure hunt can be combined with a nice walk through the center! Some of the puzzles are challenging. We discovered places and objects that we probably wouldn't have noticed otherwise (e.g. Basilica di Sant Andrea)

I did it with my daughter (10). We had a fantastic and fun day in Rome. Some questions are really tricky, but better to challenging. Also you cannot go to all locations. There are too many.

A really great way to discover a more discreet but just as exciting Rome. My 10 year old daughter loved it and the 3 hours went by in a flash. Highly recommend.
