... the sun it is very warm but we managed to find a few spots where it was shady and that was pleasant. Many locals have told us including our Host and our Gondolier man that normally around this time of the year it gets extremely humid and it is unbearable to go out in the heat so we are quite lucky as yes, at times it has been humid but not where we can't be out in it.
