For years, a puzzle has been hiding in the Onassis Library, waiting to be solved by a charismatic group of young detectives. Will you be one of them? Find the old notebook hidden among stacks of books in the library, containing the handwritten notes of an obsessive collector and the plans for a strange machine, in order to put the puzzle together. And of course don’t forget the disappearance of Grandpa Alberto!
Beginning in the Library, we’ll go out into the city center, to Thiseion and Plaka, where we’ll split into groups and set out to solve the puzzle through an adventurous quest for knowledge. We’ll collect our clues methodically, examine witnesses, meet philosophers, crack codes, and learn about the history of the city through its monuments. Are you ready?
