Libreria Acqua Alta (High Water Book Shop)

The owners of the Libreria Acqua Alta book shop couldn’t handle having their books ruined by flooding from rising tides. They made sure the bookshelves were propped higher up from the floor and used bathtubs and boats to store the best books in the shop. One of the rooms has a full-sized gondola filled with books. Stray cats, affected by the floods, tend to hang out in the shop, usually relaxing on the top of the bookshelves.
