Story[]

Teams race through Venice, Italy where one team reaches a breaking point in a frantic search for a water taxi.

Route Markers[]

The order of departure from Monumento al Caduti at Piazza Risorgimento are as follows:

  1. Becca & Floyd (3:07 am)
  2. Matt & Redmond (3:08 am)
  3. Tara & Joey (3:33 am)
  4. Liz & Michael (3:37 am)
  5. Brooke & Scott (3:38 am)
  6. London & Logan (4:21 am)

Teams must take a charter bus to Venice. The first charter bus could carry the first three teams and would depart at 4:15 am, while the second charter bus could carry the last three teams and would depart at 4:30 am. Upon arrival, teams must take a water taxi to Piazza San Marco and find a spazzino, who would give teams their next clue.

Choice A: Sing It
Teams must make their way to Trattoria al Ponte del Megio, where they dress as gondoliers and learn a traditional Italian serenade, "La Biondina in Gondoleta". They must then board a gondola traveling on the Grand Canal and perform the song for a couple on the gondola. If the mandolin player is satisfied with their performance, they would receive their next clue.

Becca & Floyd, Brooke & Scott, and Liz & Michael chose this task.


Choice B: Bring It
Teams must make their way to Campiello del Remer, where they must pick up a stack of suitcases and become porters. They must stack the suitcases on a provided dolly, then navigate through the narrow alleyways and bridges of Venice to the hotel specified on the suitcases' tags. Once they have made the delivery, they would receive their next clue from the hotel's porter.

London & Logan, Matt & Redmond, and Tara & Joey chose this task.

Teams must take a water taxi to Ca' Zenobio degli Armeni, where they would find their next clue.

"Who has masked intentions?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must choose an actor wearing a traditional Venetian mask from a performance of Commedia dell'arte and use the provided materials to replicate their mask. If they can successfully recreate their actor's mask to the artist's satisfaction, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Campo San Vio to check in.
