Assassin's Creed II

Assassin's Creed II Achievements

Art Connoisseur

Buy a Painting from Florence and Venice.  

You can unlock this as early as DNA Sequence 7. When you begin DNA Sequence 4, you are in Florence again. While you are there, make sure you stop by an Art Merchant (located by the icon) and purchase a piece of art. It doesn’t matter which painting you buy.

Then later in DNA Sequence 7, when you are finally in Venice, again, locate an Art Merchant and purchase a piece of art. There is at least one located in the San Polo district you are currently in. If there are none visible, synchronize a few View Points until one appears. The achievement will unlock shortly after.

I have boughten every painting from florence and venice and have not gotten the acheivement.
Why did this happen?
Is it just a glitch or malfunction if that can happen.

I think maybe it has to do with the fact that I hadn't bought any paintings in Florence, but had already gotten all in Venice before going back to buy them in Florence. Did you guys do the same? I didn't reciece the achievment either :/
If so, did you re-do the game to get it? Did re-doing it help the next time?

I was afraid I hadn't gotten it either, but I turned out to be in Forli instead of Venice. Bought several in Florence and popped up with the first painting I got in Venice. Not sure why it doesn't pop for some...

For those of you have had this glitch, there is no fix, the best way is just to do it on a new game.
