“The Amazon founder and his GF, Lauren Sanchez, are all over each other in Venice, and their romantic strolls naturally ended up at some primo shopping spots,” reported TMZ on Saturday.

The new couple’s Southern European vacation has drawn much attention as the pair was spotted earlier this summer gallivanting through Portofino and soaking in the Spanish sun on David Geffen’s yacht - aptly named "Rising Sun."
