Once you get out of viewing the markings, Lucy will crash into your room she
Will inform you that you have to leave, but first you must go into the Animus
For One Last time.

This game is getting pretty visual now, when you get the chance to move your
Arms, head and legs follow the commands on the screen, move Ezio and you
And you will be back in the Present
-------------------------------------------
Achievement Unlocked: Birth of an Assassin

Skills, after killing the guards follow Lucy to her car, after the Cut scene

Then strap into the Animus 2.0
-------------------------------------------------
Achievement Unlocked: Welcome to the Animus 2.0
-------------------------------------------------
After loading the Game, you will find yourself in control of Ezio Auditore, 
You should test out the diverse forms of combat, one of the most interesting
Is grabbing the opponent then punching, kneeing and head butting him, the 
Combos are also better in this game, once youíve gotten rid of them, Ezioís
Brother will approach you, after the Cut-scene loot the bodies by holding
Down the B button, you should have at least 200-300 Florins, afterwards go 
In high profile and hold A to Free-Run, follow your brother to the doctorís
Where Ezio will be healed to full health, Doctorís are all around Italy and
Can be used to both buy medicine and be healed to full health.

Ezioís Brother will propose a race to the top of the church in front of you,
People complain because they arenít very good at free-running or donít know  
This guide will help you to nail this course in one, once the race starts 
Climb Up on towards the two boxes and climb onto the house, then jump on to 
Side of the church, run up to the top then proceed towards the light, then you 
Must climb up onto the church steeple, there you will get a minor introduction
To the game, your brother thinks you should head home, but Ezio has to go 
To go pay his girlfriend a surprise visit, it also turns out that this
Steeple is one of the 20 viewpoints in Florence, Synchronize with it and then 
Jump Off to perform a leap of faith, and then head east towards Cristinaís
Home, try to avoid the guards so you donít have to pick a fight, if you do,
Counter kills are a good option for killing them quickly, once you are at
Her house, climb up into her Window (no pun intended) and follow the prompts
On the screen, the next day, you will be chased out of her house (guess why?)
And have the guards called.

You can either run away from the guards or beat the crap out of them, beating
The crap Out of them is the way to go especially if you want to master combat
In this game, after killing them, you must head home now to begin your next
Memory, after arriving at the Palazzo Auditore talk to your father for a
Mildly funny comment and to start your next Memory, you must deliver a letter
To someone in Florence, they are marked on your Mini-map, stick to the
Rooftops to avoid fights; kill the archers if any are present and head to that
House, when you are there a servant informs you that the person who you had to
Deliver the letter to, are away and are not available until the next day.

Return to your father, who is be rather pissed that he cannot deliver his
Letter, he is also chatting to Uberto Alberti, he will play as your friend
Right now, but things will change as the plot goes on, anyways you will have
Courier jobs available, if you Want to you can do them, or you can do the
Various odd jobs your Family has to offer, the job your sister has to offer is
Definitely one of the most interesting ones there Is, it turns out her lover
Has been ďUnfaithfulĒ to her and she wants you to go and teach him a lesson;
You will have a new marker on your map which indicates him, head into the 
Rooftops as per usual and head towards his direction, killing any archers
Along the way when you get there, all shall be revealed, and then you get into
A clichť street fight with the guy, heís pretty easy to knock out, just
Down him with grabs and kick him several Times and youíll be on your way.

Next speak to your little brother, Pettruccio, he will ask you to go and get 3
Eagle feathers for him, which should be a simple enough task, you have a time
Limit of 2 minutes, the feathers are scattered around the city, but you can
Find them as targets on your mini-map, after collecting them return to your
Residence and knock on the door and give Pettruccio the Feathers, afterwards
Before doing your mothers job, you should go and synchronize at least 10
View points, this will Come in handy in later missions.
