What you'll do

The old great-grandfather Sigismondo, after years of trying, managed to elaborate his sublime version of one of the most ancient Tuscan recipes. However, before giving it to his descendants as his legacy, he thought he had to test them. The recipe is hidden, in fact, in the garden of his country residence, enclosed in a labyrinth of puzzles and riddles. I will need your help to deal with this quest. After showing you an overview of the garden through the lens of my smartphone, we will join our efforts and, while you'll watch exactly what I'll see, live, we will cohoperate juggling between one clue and another. We procede together, just as if you were next to me, while actually being comfortably seated on your sofa with the PC connected to the internet in front of you. You will have to do your best to complete Sigismondo's trials, through codes and encrypted messages. Once you have succeeded in this venture, to thank you for your help, I will share, in addition to the perpetual glory, the tasty recipe that for too many years remained hidden to my palate.

-- If the scheduled times don't fit with your timezone, please check my indoor treasure hunt: Escape Doctor Nemo, available on my Airbnb profile.

-- Cost is intended per person, not per device. When you book, even as private group, please always add the number of guests that will join the activity. Up to 5 guests cost is fixed, then it rises of €10 for each extra guest from 6 on.

-- Great for families, groups, team building!

-- The exp can be played even with bad weather, unless is too risky for the host's safety (like with lightning). In those (rare) cases we will have to reschedule.

I recommend using the PC to participate in this activity. Since you have to spot small details, the bigger the screen the better the image.

Graduated in law and passionate about art and puzzles, I love to travel to discover new people and worlds! For more than 2 years I have been organizing a treasure hunt in the center of Florence ("Treasure hunt in the hidden florence") which entertained over 3000 participants. But a treasure hunt can be played anywhere, as long as enthusiasm and imagination are present. Follow me, then, and you will discover that you're never too grown up to venture out and explore the Mystery.

We did this experience as a company team event. We had a great time. It was a fun, simple, but well-thought through experience. Pietro helped us with hints when we were stuck on the clues.

Greta team building exercise to get folks outside of the day to day work grind and have a little fun. Pietro did a great job getting folks to engage.

I gifted a private group experience to a girlfriend to enjoy with her son for her birthday. They had a blast. I wanted to surprise her with this experience, so Pietro worked with me behind the scenes on scheduling and contingencies in case she could not make the date I picked. He was also very communicative and reached out the day before to make sure everything was squared away, which I really appreciated. Thank you Pietro! <3

We did Pietro's treasure quest as a team building and had a great time ! Pietro took the time to add an extra riddle for us to build on, related to our job, and that was a very sweet effort of him, so I'm very thankful ! Thanks again for your time Pietro, see you soon in Italy ;)

This is a really good team activity to do. It is entertaining and fun, but also requires you to use some brainwork and teamwork. I would recommend for social and/or corporate activity.
