How to visit the unusual Acqua Alta bookshop in Venice
Visit the bookstore Libreria Acqua Alta, it's one of the most unusual and authentic places of Venice. Its owner is an elderly bibliophile who loves to chat with visitors.

Books are scattered around the store and you have to try to find something for yourself. The owner placed the gondola in the middle of the room. The most devoted visitors to this place are cats, and you can feed them.

In this bookstore you can find collectible, vintage posters and even comic books, which no longer exist on the market. Even the owner does not know fully what can be found in his shop, and you have to become a treasure hunter.
