A friend of mine went to Rome a couple of days ago, and she posted some of the photos she'd taken in her blog. I made it my mission to walk through the game and take the very same shots she had. This is the result:

The Colosseum
Easy to find, easy to take the (more or less) correct shots...

The Pantheon
My friend said it was incredibly crowded in there, so I added two more captures to the challenge pics, one from inside (without any tourists) and one from a spot no tourist will ever see... ^^

Forum Romanum
This one was a pain - I just couldn't find the "right" spots, so in the end I gave her the panorama view.

Piazza del Popolo
The trees were in the way, so no photo from the front. But she didn't complain about the two she got instead... (And doesn't the 'real' one look photoshopped like woah?!)

I don't know many games you can use to do something like this - and it was such great fun!
The only thing I don't get is that famous areas don't show up on the map.

It took me half an hour and Google maps to find the Forum Romanum (seriously, all these ruins look the same). For someone who's just strolling through to see some sights it's extremely difficult without outside tools. Since the game offers information on the various famous areas, why not have a button that makes them appear on the map as well, if you're searching for them?

Very nice! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif And I agree the ability to mark all locations would be great - there're markers that can be set on certain locations but that's it.

The only thing I question whether they got right are all those annoying cliffs you have to navigate around.
