Bologna, Italy – Downtown

An atmospheric site to hold a team building exercise in Bologna

Dr. Clue Bologna Italy treasure hunt scavenger hunt for corporate team building

Event Description: A richly atmospheric place for a corporate teambuilding event, Bologna — site of Europe’s oldest university (founded in 1088) — is perhaps Italy’s greatest, little-known treasure. Situated half way between Florence and Venice, Bologna may lack the sheer quantity of “sights” of its more famous neighbors to the north and south, but it more than makes up for it in its absence of crowds and its authentic, medieval vibe. Arcades cover nearly every sidewalk in the old part of town; 12th-century towers jut out in unexpected places (twenty-two are still standing). And oh, the food! Bologna is clearly the culinary capital of Italy, and that’s saying something.

During your corporate teambuilding treasure hunt…expect to visit traditional trattoria and gellateria; a mysterious book publisher; a painted archway in plain sight; a frieze to fallen soldiers, and much, much more. Bologna is quite literally another world!


Not every corporate team building program is the same.  Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions.    Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions.  Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology.    Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.



Gather in the Piazza Maggiore, near the Neptune Statue (of course).
