Are you a curious human who enjoys wandering off the beaten path? Explore and learn about Venice’s marvellous centre on this playful and self-guided walk. Created by an enthusiastic Italian digital nomad, Margherita, this route shows you a slightly mysterious side to this beautiful city. As you solve location-based riddles, you’ll find out there is more to the Doge Palace than meets the eye. Along the way, you’ll unlock curious local stories and pass by contemporary hidden gems, such as an abandoned convent and an old butcher’s store turned into a vintage boutique. If you want to experience the typical Venetian atmosphere in an original way, you’re on the right way!
