Urban Game Venice

Team building in the floating city

Known for its unique architecture characterized by its canals and bridges, its Carnival, and its film festival featuring many stars, Venice has much to offer in addition to its world-renowned tourist attractions. Venice is one of the cities that best suits our Urban Game format.

Discover the city with an Urban Game

Its fascination for visitors from all over the world is truly endless en does not only derive from its unique maritime layout on a series of islands connected by bridges. Indeed, Venice bears the marks of the glorious history of the Serenissima, and it is also the romantic city par excellence. Even today it is extraordinarily alive, thanks to the many art-related exhibitions and events, the Film Festival, and the large number of films that are shot there.

And that’s still not all! Venice is also fascinating because of the halo of mystery that surrounds it. Ancient legends, mythical stories such as that of Giacomo Casanova’s escape from the doge’s prisons, images of the Major Arcana of the tarot cards appearing on monuments: Venice has many secrets to reveal to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Mysteries and curiosities about Venice

Along the way you will face all kinds of creative challenges and have to interact with the city environment and its inhabitants.

Most of the time, even if we have been to a city before, we have not been able to see everything, and likewise, we cannot know everything about it either. It may hide mysteries and curiosities, but we will only be able to learn about them by asking the locals.

A tour of the islands that make up the city fabric of Venice, a visit to St. Mark’s, the astronomical clock and the atmospheric Acqua Alta bookstore, a climb to the bell tower, a gondola ride and even an aperitif in the piazza with the typical Venetian Spritz-all of these can be parts of a tour of the most overused.

If, on the other hand, one chooses to do it as an Urban Game, these places of interest can be transformed into as many stages of an original and exciting itinerary. Team Building Treasure Hunting in Venice emphasizes the unknown, unexpected, and fun side of familiar places. Of the various ways in which the city game can be declined, we will mention Urban Movie in particular.

Venice to discover: some of the stops

Acqua Alta Bookstore

One of the most original bookstores in the world. The Acqua Alta bookstore is a place where you can find books of all kinds, old and new, arranged inside decidedly distinctive shelves: boats, gondolas, canoes, tanks, and anywhere else you can squeeze them in!

 

Rialto Bridge

Why is it famous? This bridge has become famous both for its architecture and its history. For years it was the centerpiece of Venice’s economy. To learn more, however, you will need to book our Urban Game.

 

St. Mark’s Square

St. Mark’s Square is one of the main stops during a visit to the city of Venice. Famous for its extremely expensive cafes, this is the only real square in the city. How is this possible? Well, all other places with similar conformation are called “campi.”

Urban Game Venice: unconventional tourists

Visiting the city of Venice with an urban team building activity means having an experience that has little in common with the usual sightseeing tour. Participants will, yes, discover the city’s most interesting sights, its historical monuments and the most beautiful perspectives. But this will not happen in the form of a sightseeing tour with explanations given by a guide, but rather in a playful, interactive and fun form.

Each team will have to reach different strategic points in the city and, once reached, perform a series of creativeand original tasks. N.B. These tasks will require extensive use of imagination!

Participants will have to take advantage of the city’s monuments or even the help of its inhabitants to solve the riddles and perform the tasks in the most creative way possible. For each task they will be given a score, which will be tallied at the end to choose the winning team!

Technological Urban Game: a specific app!

Our team building City Game also involves the use of technology, specifically a purpose-built web app for conducting this activity.

Thanks to the app that each team leader will have on their cell phone, teams will be able to participate interactively in the team building urban game.

In fact, the app will show the stage to be reached in which the teams will have to test themselves with the creative challenges suggested by the app. Once performed, they will be able to upload videos and photos directly to the app and go in search of a QR code that will allow them to continue to the next stage.

 

All this will make the activity a truly original adventure in discovering a city and will be an amazing way to discover in colleagues the qualities and skills that have always remained hidden!

It will also bring a lot of benefits for the team to be in a completely new place, outside the usual office environment.

Rescue Team

A mission to accomplish, a criminal to stop, a limited amount of time: the Rescue Team Team Building participants must do nothing less than save humanity!  The mission can take place among the streets of an Italian or foreign city, with strong interaction with places and inhabitants. But, upon request, we can also carry out the activity in the company’s own spaces, where participants will play with well-known or yet-to-be-known places.

In each case, Rescue Team participants face challenges of logic and creativity.The puzzles are often mechanisms to disassemble, reassemble or construct. Teams must put not only their brains but also their hands in motion with dynamic, concrete activities that have great emotional impact!
