Scavenger Hunt tour in Marco Polo's footsteps
This scavenger hunt for kids will actually engage the whole family since it’s basically an orientation tour providing a very good introduction to the main sights of Venice as well as a nice overview of a more residential neighbourhood. We start in St Mark’s Square and then we have a nice walk through the backstreets, off the beaten paths, in the lovely districts of Cannaregio and Castello to get in touch with the hidden Venice. This itinerary gives us the opportunity to talk about the glorious past of the Serenissima Repubblica but also about nowadays real life and while the kids are busy with the scavenger hunt, all your questions will be welcome!
THE PLOT OF THE SCAVENGER HUNT
Uncle Ernesto, who was an important explorer, came up with a joke: if Lisa and Teo want to open this coffer they will have to solve a mystery about the great Marco Polo, a real myth for every self-respecting explorer.This famous globe trotter was probably the first travel blogger in history: he traveled for 25 years the furthest regions of Asia from where he brought back to Venice several interesting souvenirs. Let’s discover Venice by following the incredible adventure of Marco Polo and let’s solve all the riddles to help Lisa and Teo : they have promised we can kee whatever we find in the coffer, as long as they win uncle Ernesto’s challenge.
