Foxtrail is a city adventure set in Rome. Participants follow the tracks of the fox with a walking path. Following the tracks means trying your hand at challenging tasks, looking for secret messages and hidden clues to solve to find the next clue. The ideal opportunity for an excursion with your friends, for a nice family outing or to share with your colleagues.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES FOXTRAIL WORK?
Teams of 2-6 people start out on their own. Equipped with the starting material received by e-mail and mobile phone, the search for traces left by the fox begins. Teamwork is essential when trying to understand and solve clues to find the next stage.
HOW LONG BEFORE YOU CAN BOOK FOXTRAIL?
You can book up to 5 minutes before departure, unless you have special requests that must have time to be managed and organized.
HOW CAN I RECOGNIZE THE STATIONS?
From a sign on an interesting building to a fun device or a unique object, from which you need to creatively understand the message. What you will certainly not miss is our green color and the footsteps of the fox that will make you understand that you are in the right place!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING FOR THE FOXTRAIL ROUTE?
You must remember to bring with you the documents sent by email at the time of booking, a mobile phone with internet connection and the desire to discover while having fun.
ARE THERE ANY DIFFERENT PREREQUISITES DEPENDING ON THE ROUTE?
The effort required is similar in all routes. Anyone who is able to cope with a walk that varies from hour and a half to two and a half hours can try our routes; what is required, rather, is mental readiness: a little ‘head and teamwork will be essential.

YOU WANT TO USE FOXTRAIL TO END A CORPORATE SEMINAR?
Many companies, national and international, have already used Foxtrail to conclude workshops or seminars. Participants will have the opportunity to move around in the open air divided into different teams and to have fun all together, engaging in an activity completely different from the seminars, usually mentally challenging. The Foxtrail team will be available to answer any questions related to the programming of the experience and related activities.
HOW DOES THE START WORK?
You will need to go to the address indicated in the confirmation email at the scheduled time and send a message to the number indicated with the booking code that you will find on the documents that have been sent to you. Please read the instructions on the booking confirmation email!
WHO CREATES THE TEAMS IN GROUP BOOKINGS? PARTICIPANTS OR FOXTRAIL?
Participants can be divided into any number of teams, but with a maximum of 6 participants per team. If it is a corporate event, we recommend a random team division. This promotes team spirit and better knowledge outside the company, teaches how to work together and, in international companies, brings together different nationalities.
WHO DETERMINES WHEN AND WHICH TEAM STARTS?
The start times and all important information are given in the start material, the teams will leave 15 minutes apart.
HOW MUCH TIME IS NORMALLY NEEDED TO COMPLETE A SHORT PATH ASSUMING FOR EXAMPLE A GROUP OF 50 PEOPLE?
For our routes we estimate an average duration of 1.5 hours, with departures every 15 minutes (but can also be reduced to 10 minutes for corporate events). We have 2 routes available that can be booked in parallel so assuming you can start about 6 teams of 6 people per hour for each route. Total we can manage groups of about 70 people for an experience of a total duration of about 2.5 hours.
HOW MUCH DIFFERENCE IN TIME DO THE TEAMS HAVE IN GETTING TO THE GOAL? WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM DURATION?
This is difficult to predict. Each team has its own rhythm and dynamics. Time can also be a determining factor. In good weather, it can happen that a team takes a break in an outdoor bar. Teams can manage their own time. For short routes, a maximum of 2 hours is usually required. In the case of large groups, the Foxtrail team will prepare a timetable.
IS THERE A SPECIFIC MEETING POINT FOR THE START?
The meeting point is the address that you will find in the confirmation email after making your reservation.
