Your name is Bella Sabini, a baker's apprentice, and though no one has ever told you how, you know sailing is in your blood. 

Last night you had a strange dream about a woman in a dark crimson gown. She was on a mysterious ship that docked in Genoa and made the guards bring you to her.

Very nice and exciting! A new way to explore a city. We would never find these places on our own.

Good for family to learn and observe genoese history and have fun exploring places you would not have visited otherwise. It takes a while to get the hang of it but it gets easier and more fun as time passes by.
