The Neptune statue is not in Florence

I'm form Italy and they made an amazing job recreating our cities in that game. Just one thing, the Neptune statue is not in Florence, but in Bologna (my town). Not that big deal though.

Oh btw, in the square where the Neptune statue is, there's a spot where you can look at it and the prospective makes the thumb of the left hand look like a big penis... I think you can do that in the game too!! :-)

There are Fountain of Neptune statues in both Florence and Bologna:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontana_del_Nettuno,_Bologna

Giambologna assisted on the one in Florence and sculpted the one in Bologna himself.

If you are Hungary, why not eat Turkey? You could have a side of Chile with it.

That'd be too Greece-y.

There may be a Fountain of Neptune in Florence, but the game begins in 1476, and according to the Wikipedia article, the fountain wasn't commissioned until almost 90 years later:

This work by Bartolomeo Ammannati (15631565) and some assistants, such as Giambologna, was commissioned on the occasion of the wedding of Francesco I de' Medici with grand duchess Johanna of Austria in 1565.
