1. Libreria Acqua Alta, Venice, Italy
意大利威尼斯 Libreria Acqua Alta书店
This bookstore features classic volumes of American and Italian books packed in traditional Venetian gondola boats. But the show-stopping attraction is the back of the bookstore, which opens up to a beautiful canal.
“It’s a bookshop right on the canal that floods every year, so the eccentric, stray-cat-adopting owner keeps his books in boats, bathtubs and a disused gondola to protect them,” writes Paris Review.
The store is also lauded for its extensive art and postcard collections.
