Welcome to Venice, and back to notoriety which you seem to gain quicker than before. Just remember to rip down a poster here and there. Also you have a lot of swimming to do here.
Don't forget to dye you outfit, and take off pizza cape.
Talk with Da Vinci right next to you.
They walk fast, so keep up. At the end of the tour, be ready to respond if you want; but I actually chose not to, especially after the one with the girl at the start of the game...
Anyway, visit him after to hand over your codexes.
Back west, near where you started.
Climb up and at the bell part, jump up the side of the archway to reach the ledge, slide over, and then up to the top.
Now we got four new ones on the map, but just one for now.
To the south, another bell tower, and same climb up the side of the archways.

North of the 41st VP. Remember to use counter kills with the hidden blade for these guys, easier than the sword.
Viewpoint 42 and 43
Northwest - To the NW of the city, another bell tower.
North - west of the mission marker. Another bell tower.

Just south of the 43rd VP. If you toss smoke to get away, don't hide in the well, they always check it first.
That's Gonna Leave a Mark
Take up this mission just west of a guarded building.
Just dispatch the first group, and hopefully she jumps into the canal; or like she did for me and ran all the way around through the streets. Either way, she collapses at a checkpoint, so pick her up and help the theives that escort you to the next marker as they kill incomings.
Now the fun part. Run along the canal, ahead of the boat, and take out guards all the way to the NW docks. You can ignore the higher up ones if you want, and guards on you will not attack the boat. Easiest way to kill them is by tossing them into the water; Ubisoft still has water set to fatal for NPCs.
Follow them along the west of the dock when they are in the clear. Be ready to pick her up and take her to the operating table. Then just be ready to twice interact during the scene.
Just enter the door after the scene. Interact for what must be some sort of "cute" Starbucks reference.
Re-enter the house for the boss' mission.
There are three zones to scout out. Let's start with the docks. Remember to use eagle vision to single them out.
Docks - This guy is at the nose of the big boat. But to get on the side of the boat you need to approach from the direct side, then shimmy under him and pull him over.
South Market - Pretty much in the center of the circle, on the roofs. Go for the hanging kill.
NW Market - He should be around the middle, among the stalls, so just take him out.
Ugo is over Da Vinci's house... hmmm.
Anyway, go NW first, and from the roof you can jump to a hay cart. Wait for the trio to leave, then quickly take out the last guard, and then any others left around. Return to Ugo and only one ally needs to reach the roof with you.
Next is SW, and if you approach it from the NE, you can drop behind the two guards and do a double blade kill, even if they see you for a second. Open the cage, fight some guards, and then climb up. I would just go east and follow the tops to the marker.
Finally is the south zone, which is the easiest with only one guard and a ladder nearby to make your escape. Tricky getting them out because they could get tripped up and attract guards.
Good time to return to the villa to collect your coin. Also a prime time to knock out the paintings in San Gimignano, or buy up the Metal armor set if you want it.
On your way back to Venice, feel free to drop some coin for paintings at Forli if you got 2500f or so to spare.
Then back to the Thieves Guild station of Venice.
Clothes Make the Man
Ugo waits at the docks with his second mission.
Two items are SE of here. Approach the first through the canal and you can snatch the chest without incident. Then exit through the canal.
The second group is hard to avoid, and it may be possible from the walls behind them, but you can toss coins, slip behind them, and loot with a smoke bomb ready to pop.
The third chest is to the north, which is where the boat will be. It's hard to get without a fight, so start with a double kill if you can.
With all three items, run north to the boat and just jump on to row it west. Once at the marker, just jump off.
Monkey See, Monkey Do
Rose in front of the thief house offers you a new ability.
The leap climb incorporates a few techniques. You hang from a ledge, push up, hold the free run button, press the jump button, and then grasp with the off-hand button. It's tricky if you don't understand how the controls of this game works, otherwise it's easy.
Just practice on the scaffolding and that's it.
By Leaps and Bounds + VP 44
Rosa waits by the Frari, a church that also has a VP that you may have noticed I skipped, or tried to get anyway and failed.
Getting up the church is easy, you can use your new skill on this wall, or go north to get up using the old ways. Approach the tower and jump to the northern face of the tower to grab the ledge, and from here use the leap climb to get up, then over and up to go all the way up.
Hit the point and leap down. Speak to Rosa to complete.
1. Hit the Rialto bridge, it's on the top flag to the north, on the west side.
2. Head to the little market area just west of this bridge, and the feather is up the wall to the east.
3. From #2, follow the roofs west and at the canal, look down south and hop down to it sticking out of a wall.
4. In front of Emilio's house, there is a canal. Wherever you want, follow this canal west and the feather is along the way, nearer to where it spills into the sea.
5. SE of the travel station on the NW side of town, up above on wooden boards and between the two buildings at the mouth of a canal.
6. Head to the thieves guild building on the west side of town. The feather is over the sea behind it.
7. To the SE of the guild HQ, this is on a low-hanging board over the streets.
8. From the HQ, follow the border of the district and there is a flat part that is aligned with a canal. Over the bridge here is a feather. This is SW of the highlighted building on your map.
9. Directly south of that same marked church, you'll find this feather over yet another canal bridge.
Everything Must Go
Enter Antonio's house, and be ready for an interact.
Head to the targets and pull off the first four to the south, and the northern one can be tossed easily. Then head to Antonio's spot on the ground.
Now go to the east of the fortress in the canal, and from the water make your way up, then to the side, up again, and back to the middle. Leap up to the top, avoid the archer across the way, and take down the archer up top.
Last thing to do is take out the boss, Emilio. He will patrol around the ground floor, and you can pick any time to drop down and take him out, in almost any way.
