Acqua Alta bookstore is one of the most unusual places in Venice, where tourists come because of rare books and atmosphere.
An old bibliophile owns the Acqua Alta bookstore (Libreria Acqua Alta) and he loves to chat with visitors. There are many cats in the shop, they are very friendly and you can even feed them. You can see the most striking attribute of the entire store a gondola in the center of the shop. Nobody knows, why it is here.
In this shop you can find anything you want — retro comic books, collectible books, posters, issued in the last century. Sometimes even the store owner doesn't know what is on his shelves and on the floor of the hall.
