Assassins Creed 2 locations in Italy.

Update as of June 2014.
I visited Italy again and would like to share the following : For those new visitors to the land of renaissance, all you need to do is really memorize your route (eg. In Florence, the direction of one monument to the next) within the game and trust me when I told you that the game developers are very accurate in the location of the iconic monuments. You should not get lost (Venice especially) if you really know the game well.

Assassins Creed 2 locations in Italy.
The truth is, the whole reason for me to visit Italy in the first place is the fact that I play Assassins Creed 2 and I just want to see the monuments used in the game (a 14th Century depiction) and how the buildings differ in the current timeline.
In short, I have to say the game developers actually put in much effort in creating an almost similar interpretations of how Italy supposed to look then.
Without further ado, here the Ezio in-game locations (14th Century) and me in the current actual Italian’s cities. And yes some of my friends have said that I brought obsession to a whole new level. Enjoy!
