Libreria Acqua Alta
Totally not in our agenda, but I am glad we stumbled into this when we were exploring the alleys towards the east side of Venice.
Dubbed (or rather claimed) to be “the most beautiful bookshop in the world,” I find it most intriguing or interesting than beautiful. It is in fact a big mess inside with an unused gondola in the middle which holds hundreds of books. There is another room with a bathtub full of books. The mess is not necessarily bad, because it did add a lot of character to place — but I can’t imagine anyone really shopping for books here.
Maybe a postcard?
Should add this to your list, if you’re going to Venice… 🙂
