6.onto our first taste of authentic gelato! {grom}
7.enjoyed a {very} romantic stroll along the canals.
8.breakfast at the hotel while chatting with sweet english women.
9.last stop: the famous rialto bridge.

the atmosphere was so italian and nearly impossible to put into words. 
{the humidity was a little much, i'll admit that.}
