Scavenger Hunt in the Boboli Gardens

VIK’s team of educators and art historians designs and develops kids and teens interactive programmes using visual thinking strategies, age appropriate and life skill tools to engage the younger ones in a fun, experience that will enhance their critical thinking skills and their problem solving ones in an active learning activity.

 Walking around downtown Florence is a beautiful experience that becomes even better when looking for some clues and listening to stories, in search of great artistic treasures. Family coat of arms, hidden portraits of famous artists, very special light fixtures, medieval rings and hidden messages will be some of the “keys” kids will look for while walking around the city.  This walk will go from the very famous Piazza Signoria to the other side of the city, crossing the Ponte Vecchio and going into the hidden streets of the Oltrarno. Entering the Boboli gardens they will begin their treasure hunt adventure looking for clues and solving enigmas. At the end the treasure they will find (it’s a secret) will give them the opportunity to relax and water paint Florence’s beautiful skyline.

Cultural family experiences are entirely organized by VIK . Kids and teens tours have one educator or guide (depending on the age) exclusively for themselves. Experiences are all designed with the correct language code, the right amount of information and age appropriate depth of contents.While kids are touring, parents are more than welcome to come along and have their own time around the sites while their children will be engaged in their learning activities.

VIK can also organize another extra guide especially for parents who would like to enjoy the same path as their children but with a different and more elaborate exposition of information .
