Fighting tip for instant kill:

Ezio’s best attack, the counter-kill, is enabled when you go into a fight without a weapon selected. The counter-kill system lets you steal your opponents weapon with your bare hands and use it against them for a quick, gruesome kill.

Assassinate without fighting. How to find the 7 secret locations:

From an introduction to the economic system in Assassin’s Creed 2, where you can pay for weapons and armors (from which you gain health). The following video quickly swifts into a step-by-step guide to assassinating your target without fighting at all! You do this by purchasing Poison Vile at a merchants shop. Then (for example) in a by Lorenzo de’ Medici ordered assassination of a secondary target, you can’t reach your target because there’s a bodyguard with him. By dipping your Poison Blade (effectively a Hidden Needle) into the Poison you bought earlier, and stabbing the bodyguard with it, he (unwillingly) takes care of the heavy work for you.

Later in this walkthrough video, Assassin’s Creed 2 Production Manager Jean-Francois Boivin reveals there are SEVEN Secret Locations and they are all the interiors of famous landmarks in Italy. Hint: They include the Basilica Santa Maria del Fiore (high in the Florence cathedral church), the inside of a catacomb, and a palace. You can discover their entrance in various regions of the game, often heavily guarded. You would be wise to go after these locations, since they not only offer different, Prince of Persia-like acrobatics and stealth gameplay, but also because they fill out the gaps in the Templars VS. Assassins history storyline, and maybe most importantly they give Ezio a special reward as you complete each of them, collect all seven to obtain an ultimate reward.
