Treasure Hunt Italy:

The most extraordinary experience you will ever play

Imagine being the protagonists in an exciting treasure hunt through spectacular settings in some of the most beautiful cities in the world.

A race against time together with your friends to discover the treasures of ancient Rome, the secrets of the Florentine Renaissance or through the mysterious canals of Casanova’s Venice.

Decipher the codes, find the clues, discover history, traditions, fashion, cooking and all the beauty of Italy.

Macchiavelli Eventi® and® present a new way to explore Italy and have a blast doing it!

How it works

Treasure Hunt Italy® are GPS-based games for iPad where you can play with or against your friends. Teams take photographs, shoot videos, record voices, solve puzzles, answer quizzes and questions about history, culture, fashion, cooking, traditions…

More than in any other way, players get to know the history, secrets and subtleties of the town they’re exploring while having tons of fun.

You can choose to play among many different formats available:

Treasure Hunt

An exciting challenge where insight, craftiness and quick decisions are essential to success.

There’s no time to lose! Every team chooses a route full of unforeseen difficulties and challenges.


“Action!” is a brand new way to learn about the beautiful cities where the most famous Italian movies were shot.

Teams with their own iPad will do a remake of certain scenes that will then be shown and awarded during the final “Oscar Night”.

Food & Wine

This game lets the teams learn and enjoy traditional specialties of the town where the hunt takes place.

The Food tasting is associated with Wine Tasting of the top local wines in the best typical eateries.

Eco Game

The players of this Urban Game move through the city on rickshaws (with a driver) to places where cars and motorbikes can’t go.

You’ll see beautiful and hidden places of the most famous cities of art in a way no one else can!
