  7. no team name

    As a Venice students it was nice to see the city with a tourist eyes! The path is great to get to know spots that you wouldn’t necessarily visits without a local’s suggestion! The riddles were sometimes challenging but they definitely make the player more confident with the city and its labyrinth structure! By mistake I unfortunately skipped one of the riddle..
