The book Carnival at Candlelight by Mary Pope Osborne, illustrated by Sal Murdocca is the source of inspiration for this engaging scavenger hunt in the Doge’s Palace. Honestly, when I read the book, I thought: “One again, I am late: this is the kind of story I have always wanted to write!” and when I turned the last page I already had the scavenger hunt in my mind!
Jack and Annie, two American brothers who live in the Frog Creek Wood in Pennsylvania, are the protagonists of a series of adventures on a magic tree house that takes them in different parts of the real word and also in fantasy realms. One day, they come to Venice for a very special a mission that takes them also into the Doge’s Palace.
Let’s follow together Jack and Annie’s adventure in Venice and help them to complete their mission: during the tour, there will be riddles to solve, strange creatures to draw, instructions to follow and many tales to listen!
We will walk throughout sumptuous chambers full of art treasures and we will across the famous Bridge of Sighs to explore the ancient prisons of Venice!
By the way: I highly recommend reading the book Carnival at Candlelight by Mary Pope Osborne before coming to Venice to have more fun with the tour!
