Discover Venice’s secrets and its famous Carnival by playing this exclusive carnival hunt!
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. Personalize your white mask with a professional mask maker!
Put your finished mask on and take your carnival super selfie! Post your masked selfie on our Facebook page and invite your friends to like it. The most creative, fun and bizzarre pics get a reward!
