How the Rome Treasure Hunt Works

Your Rome city treasure hunt or scavenger hunt will have a variety of factual, cryptic and fun clues and tasks, more than can be done in the time available. Then there is the infamous 'shopping list', a word quiz and photos to take thus keeping all team members busy throughout the event.

Teams need to be back on time to mark the Rome treasure hunt at the finish location or risk blowing their chances of winning the treasure as they lose points for every minute late. The marking session is great fun with teams marking their own results under the watchful eye of another team member, but the organiser's decision is final (unless swayed by a bottle of red wine!). These fun marking sessions can be at a location of your choice - in a bar, conference room or café for example.

Marking of the smartphone or tablet Rome treasure hunt is automatic but each team has no idea of the scores of the other teams until all is revealed at the finish venue. Clues can be answered or skipped and hints are available if teams are struggling for answers ... but at a points cost.

Your Scavenger or Treasure hunt will be written with start and finish locations to suit you and the photo tasks ensure that you have a lasting memory of your day. The hunt can even be tailored to your industry.

Rome - The capital city of Italy with a history stretching back over 2,500 years ...

Take a memorable trip round Rome. Visit well-known places of interest and discover corners of Rome that are usually never seen by visitors. Perfect for international team building events and company away days.

In 1870, the city of Rome became the capital of the newly unified Italy but its chequered history stretches back a long way. It was reputedly founded in 753 BC by the mythical Romulus and Remus but in reality, the area has been settled since the stone age. Rome as we know it grew from a collection of Iron Age huts and, foillowing an invasion, became the seat of power of the neighbouring Etruscan kings until the last one was overthrown about 500 BC.

The Roman Republic followed during which time the city was essentially ruled by a consul who was designated by the senate. The city continued to develop under the subsequent Emperors, rapidly extending its influence throughout Europe as the centre of the Roman Empire. Rome fell to the invading German forces in 476AD and began a long decline.

During the early Middle Ages, Rome changed hands several times, and seriously deteriorated, finally ending up under the rule of the Catholic Church. Late in the 15th century, the focus of the Italian Renaissance shifted from Florence to Rome. The Popes wanted Rome to have the most splendid buildings in Italy and set about building some of the finest of Rome's churches, bridges and public spaces. Some of the most celebrated artists of the time were working in Rome - Caravaggio and Michaelangelo to name but two.

This has left a legacy of spectacular ruins, fabulous buildings, statues, fountains and frescos that you will experience on your Rome treasure or scavenger hunt.
