Your Wish is Granted 10
Throw money in a well.

The first requirement is to have money. The currency in this game is Florins. You will no doubt be getting a lot of these in the game, but if you want to get it right away just steal money from the various people walking around by pressing near them.

Wells can be found throughout Rome. There is one just about in the middle of the map, on the far East side of Centro District. It's right in front of the gray building on the map, by the bank and the blacksmith. Wells will have a rope and bucket, with an outer octagon shape. There is wood around it as well, so if you find a hole and it doesn't look like this, it's not a well. To throw the money, hold and select the money bag icon. Now face the well and press and the achievement will unlock.

Fly Like an Eagle 10
Jump with the parachute off the top of Castel Sant' Angelo.

The parachute unlocks after all of Leonardos’s war machines have been destroyed. Meet up with him at the usual meeting place (the L icon), and you’ll have access to them. Once you have the parachute, climb to the top of Castel Sant’ Angelo (the top of the flagpole with a red flag) and jump off. This location is at the top of the map indicated by a circular shape. It is within a restricted area. The easiest way to get there is to wait until playing Sequence 8 Memory 2: "An Apple a Day". This mission is after a lengthy cutscene where a female is moaning and crying in a window. Look up and you'll see the flagpole you must climb. Get to the top of it and jump by pressing then press to open the parachute moments after jumping. If you die during this mission, you will spawn at the checkpoint near the window.

You may purchase parachutes by going to a tailor. To check if you have parachutes, press and select Inventory > Supplies > Parachutes. They cost 170 florins each.

Note: Sometimes the achievement won't trigger if you activate the parachute instantly after jumping. You should wait a moment before using it.

The Gloves Come Off 10
Win the highest bet at the Fights.

Fights can be participated in by going inside and beneath the Barracks. The Barracks will unlock after completing Sequence 3 and is in the Campagna District (icon is a white sword with a black background). Be sure to have plenty of florins in case you lose the bets. There are a total of five fights to partake in. After finishing the first four, set your bet to the highest amount (500 florins) and win. You must defeat a total of 5 mercenaries within 40 seconds.

There isn’t a real strategy here, besides spamming the button. Continue knocking mercenaries out, and you’ll earn 1150 florins. You can only use your fists, but you will still be able to do counter attacks which will save you lots of time.

Mailer Daemon 20
Access your email in 2012

*Obtain this achievement as early as possible to avoid missing it*

At a certain point in the game, you’ll be told that you have new emails waiting for you. Exit the Animus, and head towards Altair’s statue. Press any button to access your computer and the achievement will unlock.

Be sure that you check your email before the final memory sequence. After completing the final memory sequence, you cannot exit the Animus (not even replaying DNA). If, for some reason, you do miss this achievement, don't be too stressed out. The email can be checked as early as sequence 2, so just start a new game on another save file if that happens.

We are the Sultans of Swing.
