Get Outside of Lara's Front Gate
In the practice level you can get outside of Lara's front gate. Simply go to the last obstacle(the rope slide) walk to the edge with the rope slide and side step right all the way you can. After this you must turn about an 1/8 of a turn towards the wall. Now jump in the air, without pushing any direction buttons, while in the air press the look button and forward, and let go before landing. Repeat this process a few more times and by about the third jump you should be on top of the tower and able to jump onto Lara's outside wall. Don't ask me why this happens must be a glich in the game. From here you can get outside of Lara's front gate or even get a view of her hedge maze, from above.
Goodbye Butler
Tired of the pesky butler following you around everywhere in Lara's home? Walk into the kitchen and open the freezer, go inside and wait for the butler to arrive. Once he comes in jump over him and close the door behind you. Bye, bye, butler.
When Lara is hanging from a ledge, hold the WALK button and press UP to do a handstand.

Offsore Rig Tip
In the beginning of the level, make your way to the pool and run past the two guards. When you get to the windows section, run into the window, then push the ROLL button. If you were close enough you'll wind up on the other side of the glass with a headstart on your pursuers.
Opera House Tip
At the begining of the Opera House move in front of the swinging box. Take out your Uzis, run forward, press CIRCLE and do a backflip. As soon as you're off the plank, start firing to kill the goon below.
Secret Room in Lara's House
When you explore the outside of the house go to the front door and open it. Walk straight in and look at the two halls on each side of the clock. You will be coming back to the righthand hall after you hit the switch I'm getting ready to tell you about.

Leave from the door you just opened and go to your left, head into the maze. Go left always in the maze unless your only option is to go right. When you get to the back of the maze you will see a brick wall, look down the hall and you will see two openings. Take the first opening to the right and fall into the hole. Then go to the end of the hall and jump out, push the button on the wall and you will see a cinema of the door opening back in the house. This door is timed, so you have to be fast.

Go back the way you came in, jump out of the hole and go left. Then keep following the maze turning right everytime unless you have to turn left.

Exit the maze at the end and run back into the house and through the door. It leads to the basement below, where you'll you will see several chests and windows on each side. It looks like a huge statue is on the right.

Note: When you find the lever that you have to pull to access the secret room, be sure to take the flares on the right hand side. It'll make the journey back much easier.

Shortcuts Thru Bartoli's Hideout
After you get the Stone Dragon, go to the previous room where you flipped the secret switch. Break out to the window where there will be a guard that drops the Uzi Clip. Go to the left side of the balcony and in the corner of the two railings. Face the orange building with shingles on the roof. Do a standing jump grab and twist right or left a little. You should grab the shingles. Get the Detonator Key and continue your level.

Actually, you don't need the Detonator Key to complete Bartoli's Hideout. Go to the left side of the white building you are supposed to blow up. Hold the Action button and press Up. You should vault up the roof. Find the hole, drop down and exit.

Turn on the Radio
You can turn on Lara's radio in her house. Enter her house, but instead of going to the hall to the kitchen, go to the opposite hallway. Head towards the pool and when you are 3/4 of the way there you look to the right and you see something brass and white. That is her stereo. Sidestep over a little bit and there is a gray panel that is the on/off switch. Press it to turn on the music.
Venice Tip
To avoid the timed sequence at the end of the Venice section, just leave the boat in the room where the last swich is that opens the exit and swim out under the door and then swim to the exit. You'll get another boat at the start of Bartoli's Hideout.
