Florence: IRL vs. Assassin’s Creed 2

One of the things that struck me about walking around Milan and Florence was, and I know this is going to sound lame, how much the old architecture reminded me of Assassin’s Creed 2’s environments. One of the things I was surprised to see were fist-sized holes in old castle walls that I figured were only placed in the game as justification for Ezio’s ability to climb any surface — I didn’t think they existed in real life!

This afternoon, I fired up the game again to have a virtual walk-around in Florence (or Firenze, to Italians), and captured some shots that lined up with photos I’d taken.
