You can unlock this as early as DNA Sequence 10. To continue with “A Piece of the Puzzle”, you have to locate a total of 20 glyphs dispersed among the five cities. As you explore each city, you will eventually pass landmarks that will be added to your database. Some will have a icon, telling you that these buildings have a glyph on them somewhere. Locate the glyph, scan it with your Eagle Vision (hold ) and decode the puzzle presented. Do this for all 20 glyphs and the achievement will unlock.
Number of glyphs in each city:
- Florence - 5
- Monteriggioni - 1
- Tuscany/San Gimignano - 5
- Romagna/Forli - 2
- Venice - 7
Note: You can locate the glyphs in any order you want but the puzzles will always be in the same order as in the video below (or in any video you choose to watch).
I found this site very helpful. For each city, it has location descriptions and a map. LINK
There is no way I would have earned this achievement without the internet. I was awful on the 3 symbol codes and the rings you have to spin to make the historic paintings/pictures. But after I got this achievement Assassin's Creed 2 became the second game that I have completed every achievement for.
Database>Locations will highlight any remaining glyphs and The Truth will show any unsolved glyph puzzles. The puzzles start off logically and easy - later you get some that make no sense to only the idiot who devised them (clearly it started as a team effort, then was left to 1 idiot who made up nonsense). The paintings showing humans breeding with gods includes a god disguised as a swan! A game requiring this much Googling is proof of the developer's incompetence. The solitary hint you get is poor too. The symbol-search on the photos afterwards is retardedly simplistic though!
BTW, the dial codes - first you need to notice a symbol and number hidden in the background photos - line the symbol up with that number and then work out the missing symbols. The one where "there's something you can count" is counting angles, i.e. the diamond within a diamond has 8 angles - and I think it lined up with zero, due to 5 being < according to the photos (or was it 4?). Check YouTube - done.
