Walking on maze-like streets between walls, bridges, and canals is quite amusing. With all the beautiful sites in the picturesque floating metropolis, one can't help but wonder, what else can I see in Venice?
In a city that is surrounded by water, it is a daring move to keep and establish a bookshop where there's always intermittent flooding.

Thus he named it Libreria Acqua Alta, which in English means the library of high waters.
