Being in the flood-prone city of Venice, the store displays its books using bathtubs, waterproof bins, and even a full-size gondola to protect them from the damaging effects of incoming water when the canals flood. You can find a plethora of second-hand atlases, art books, dictionaries, biographies, and history books available for purchase. There is a pretty lookout overseeing a channel in one of the back rooms, and the store is even known to have a couple of friendly cats roaming around!

Wine and Cicchetti Tour

As you most likely know, food is a large part of the culture in Italy. Venice is known for its delectable snack called Cicchetti, similar to Tapas in Spain. If you are a foodie, be sure to try this Venetian dish.
