Libreria Acqua Alta
Wonderful little bookstores are scattered all over Venice and Libraria Acqua Alta (Bookstore of High Water) is one of these hidden gems. Named and themed around the fact that Venice's floods are a peril to books, all of the store's stock is placed in floatable receptacles, including a full-sized gondola. The store owner himself has been known to float somewhere above reality; he's often seen in costume among his precious tomes.
