    After the mission where you save Lorenzo's family from the templars, and spoke to him afterwards, a message will pop up on screen saying that Assassination contracts have been unlocked. Simply go to the first one, it doesn't have to be that particular one, any will do. And follow the instructions given therein. Achievement unlocks once the mission is complete.

    Assassination missions don't open until the end of sequence four, after you've saved Lorenzo. His method of ruling Florence seems to be bumping off anyone who causes him trouble. Ours is not to reason why.

    You will notice a new marker on the map, a black diamond with a crosshair target inside. Travel to this, which is a pigeon coop on top of a building, and interact with the coop to get your first mission. Travel to the target, using eagle vision to identify him where needed, and kill him, preferably quietly so as to avoid unwanted attention from guards.
