The Appennine Mountains is a mountain range stretching from the north to the south of Italy, along its east coast. The mountains link Florence to Romagna and Forlì. Several farms and a church can be found in the mountain range.
When Ezio Auditore traveled back to Florence in 1480, after assassinating Jacopo de' Pazzi, he went to meet with Leonardo da Vinci. However, he found that Leonardo had left his workshop. A civilian told him Leonardo had moved to Venice. With the new information in mind, Ezio rode to the Appennine Mountains and found Leonardo with his cart broken.
Ezio helped his friend fix the carriage and caught his first glimpse of the flying machine. Together they set off for Forlì, from where they would take a boat to Venice. However, Borgia guards on horses appeared and chased Ezio and Leonardo, forcing Ezio to speed through the mountain range, evading fires and Borgia guards alike.
Soon after, they reached the end of the mountain range and Ezio told Leonardo to go ahead while he took care of the guards. The guards surrounded Ezio, but they were quickly killed.
