Hi everybody,

I went on holiday to Italy recently and spent a day in central Rome doing the usual tourist trail stuff. Being the fanboy that I am I thought I'd do a photo/screenshot comparison on my gaming blog between various real-life landmarks and their virtual counterparts.

It's a project that I thought would encompass one post and a few pictures but soon became a lot bigger, and I'd love it if people would come along and have a look!

The first part, featuring the Colosseum, Campidoglio, Pantheon and Trajan's Market is here:

...and the second, which looks at the Castel Sant'Angelo, St. Peter's and the Spanish Steps, is here:

I'd really like to hear what people think of the two posts, whether on the forum or on the blog comments, since I see to be writing about AC every other post at the moment (my most recent post, about game music, also has a track from AC2 on it).

Sorry if you disagree with this blatant advertising, but I think there's a lot of things on the posts that you might enjoy.

Thanks!

Here are some pics I took on my trip to Italy last year on my honeymoon. You can use them to compare also.
Enjoy!

Thanks, I really liked the ones of Florence and Venice. I went to Florence when I was ten and can't remember it that well, and I've never been to Venice, but if/when I go to either I might be tempted to do another photo blog about it compared to AC2. I'm looking forward to seeing how they realise Constantinople as well.

My pics will be coming soon as well. Ezio is the main reason I chose Italy as my holiday destination

I did it the other way round - I was wondering what game to buy and only settled on Brotherhood because I was going to Rome. I had been thinking about getting it for quite a while though.
