Teams must make their way to Trampolino Olimpico and go snowrafting. Once at the bottom, they will receive their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after receiving their clue at Trampolino Olimpico.

Teams must head to the Rialto Bridge in Venice and join a group of traveling players to form the street theater known as Commedia dell'arte until the Fast Forward clue appeared in the skit. Once the team saw it, they could claim the Fast Forward. Steve & Dave won the Fast Forward.

Teams must take a train to Venice and find the Ponte delle Guglie to search for their next clue.

Choice A: Waterway
Team must travel by gondola and use a map to guide their Gondolier to Campo Querini Stampalia. Teams cannot ask anybody for directions. Once there, teams may find their next clue.

Amanda & Chris, David & Jeff, Jon & Al, Monica & Sheree, Reichen & Chip, Russell & Cindy, Steve & Dave, Steve & Josh, and Tian & Jaree chose this task.

Choice B: Pathway
Teams must walk the paths of Venice to Campo Querini Stampalia, only by asking directions and without consulting a map. Once there, teams may find their next clue.

Kelly & Jon and Millie & Chuck chose this task.

Teams must go to Palazzo da Mosto and find a party where their next clue is located. However, the party does not start until 5:00 pm.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock will have to take one of four photos of a Venetian mask and enter a party of people wearing masks. Once they correctly find the person wearing the matching Venetian mask, they will receive their next clue. If they incorrectly choose, the mask-wearer will simply take their photo and walk away, and they will have to go back in line to start over again.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Palazzo Ducale and find the Citta di Padova boat docked at Laguna Veneta to check in.
