    The famous Venetian "Libreria Acqua Alta" is one of the most original book shops in the world, with its true gondola in the center, to display books on. Simply unbelieveble!

    In some ways, it's like any other great bookstore: friendly owner, lots of books, and two cats. But it's also so unique and pays homage to the canal in so many cool, eclectic ways!

    Worth a detour from the busier parts of town, a bookstore w unique decor! Books are mostly in Italian and a few shelves of other languages, found an old copy of wealth of nations to keep :)

    Very cool spot for the decor alone. Sort of like a madman's personal library. Check out the view of the canal and the staircase made of books in the back.

    Liberia Acqua Alta features steps created from stacks of hardbacks tied together by string. The shop is only about a decade old and houses four cats, who will likely judge you from their as you skim. Read more

    Be sure to check out the view up the book stairs in the back, or browse the poetry while listening to the water lap up through the door to the canal..bellissimo.

    One of the 3 most famous 2nd hand bookstores. It's was flooded but the owner kept all the water damaged books. Go check it out!

    A nice break from the crowded roads of Venice. Unfortunately most of the books are in Italian. Lots of postcards & maps

    Magnifique! Une librairie qui vit au rythme de l'eau. Des livres dans tous les sens: de quoi y passer des heures! Ne manquez pas l'escalier en livres ainsi que le petit balcon sur l'eau.

    Книжный магазин, который вы должны обязательно посетить! Выделите на него хотя бы час и половину чемодана — так-как вам захочется купить все! Куча книг по дизайну, фотографии, искусству. Цены низкие.

    Fantastica libreria antica piena di incanto! Scorci romantici e super originali! Un po turistica ma ne vale la pena! Tappa d'obbligo
