    purchased. A sandwich lunch was purchased on the way home for a break. Later in
    the afternoon we headed out again and purchased Maddi’s necklace for her Murano
    glass necklace piece. Dinner at a local square near Rialto Bridge for pizza,

Around every corner, we found quaint little alleyways and tiny shops set amongst brick ...
