If you are a book lover, here’s a secret you are going to love!

Libreria Acqua Alta, Venice, Italy: The translation is “library of high water.” It’s spread out through various rambling rooms; one room with a gondola stacked with books, other rooms are packed with rowing boats & bath tubs full of old second hand atlases, dictionaries, art books, biographies and history books.

There’s something for every one, you just have to look long enough. In the back room you can look out to one of the channels, which makes this place even more special.
