My favourite place in Venice, the Libreria Acqua Alta. 

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.

There’s also a staircase made of books outside that you can climb up and get a gorgeous view of the canal, and a courtyard of seats made of books where you can sit and read. 

Seriously, books, canals, cats and boats. Can a place get any better?
