We visit this amazing bookshop on every visit to the city, and always buy a couple of books - once found and then inside, it is so fascinating. There are actual boats inside filled to the brim with... more »
This bookstore is extremely interesting. They keep their books is gondolas in some spots due to the frequent flooding (I'm guessing that's what draws people in) but it's more that that. It seems small but there are so many books in this shop! It was enough to just walk through and read the titles - the atmosphere is very peaceful. Definitely a must see for any book lover on your trip to Venice.
Quaint unique bookshop that's is/was know to get flooded. It's nice to visit and see. If you live cats, they have a few resident gattos. Due to its popularity it can get very busy/full so be prepared
