    This one isn't too bad and it just requires a lot of florins. To get to 80% on the stronghold you need to buy all the possible architects renovations. That will get you about 65% after that just buy art, weapons, and armor. Codex pages and feathers also help too, but not so much. Once you hit 80% you'll get your achievement.

    If you aren't sure how much completion % you have just go to Ezio's sister and check the book.

    CSARdiverI recommend renovating the bank, brothel, mine early on. You will have so much income early in the game you won't have time to spend it all.

    The total value of the Villa is 150,000f, so 80% is 120,000f. Buying all the buildings and all the building upgrades gets you close to 100,000f. The remaining 50,000f or so in the Villa's value comes from buying armor/ weapons and collecting. If you get all the building upgrades and buy all the weapons and armor that appears in the shops, then by the end of the game you'll be almost garenteed to have the 80% needed, if you also collect all 100 feathers for the achievement, they will also contribute significantly. Other collectables such as the codex pages and assassins seals will help as well. Being story-related they are hard to miss.

    As HeathR2 wrote, put everything you can into the Villa. Go buy a treasure map from the Art Dealer when you set him up and loot the stronghold. This helps a lot.

    Also, as he said, forego any new gear, but where I concentrated my efforts was on the side story plots; get the Assassin's Seals, as these are a big boost both in prestige and some loot lying around the tombs, and the Codex pages.
