    After the Paperboy mission, you should unlock the Race side missions, with one available in the initial area of Firenze (Florence) called "Florentine Spirit". You obtain this from a thief standing around on the street.

    Simply free run / climb / jump through the checkpoints within 2:30 to win the race and the achievement will pop at the end. Almost the entire race is on rooftops, except the first and last checkpoints. (For the last one, if you're at full health, it should be safe to just jump down -- I jumped and did not die, and it saved a lot of time over climbing down. As Octobot Super notes, there's a bale of hay here, but even if you miss you'll survive.)

    Octobot SuperThere's no need to wonder about how you're going to get down to the last checkpoint you mentioned. The second to last checkpoint being on the tiny roof should be a hint enough: you're supposed to jump down into the hay.
