What to expect

A carnival treasure hunt in Venice to uncover the city’s hidden treasures by playing.

A fantastic route, at the discovery of Venice’s secrets and its famous Carnival. You’ll be given a map to start you on the treasure hunt, but that’s not all: after downloading the App on your phone, this will become your compass and your personal automatic storyteller, recounting the secrets of the city and of this festive period.

The game will take you across the whole city, leading you into unexplored corners, and of course passing through the heart of Venice and the Carnival: St. Mark’s Square.

During the hunt, you’ll have to take a picture of at least 3 points highlighted on the map. At the end, the treasure will be yours: two Venetian masks, one beautifully decorated in traditional style and the other one white, just waiting to be painted. A professional Mask-maker will happily give suggestions to personalise it!

Before you rush home to decorate the second one, put your finished mask on and take your carnival super selfie!

Itinerary

  • Start at Bottega Testolini (Bacino Orseolo), adjacent to St. Mark’s Square
  • Through impressive squares, among which Campo Manin, Campo Santo StefanoandCampo Sant’Anzolo. These are not squares per se, as the word “campo” actually means “field”.
  • Discovering hidden treasures like the Scala Contarini del Bovolo.
  • Then, the ancient Calle degli Assassini.
  • Across the ponte delle Ostreghe, a bridge which is a testament to Venice’s ancestral fishing tradition.
  • And, of course, the churches. Most have incredible anecdotesto tell and sometimes even scandals. The church of san Maurizio, not so scandalous, does however host a great collection of musical instruments. Venice is after all the city of music.

Summary of Treasure

At the start you’ll receive the map to look for your treasure and you’ll download the App on your phone: this will be the compass guiding you and the voice tell you stories along the way. On the map you will see 4 hidden places to take a picture of. You will have to show a picture for at least 3 of the places to the Mask-maker and then you will win two Venetian carnival masks!
