The inevitable places in Venice

Librairia acqua alta

We say of her that it is the most beautiful bookshop of the world. And that seems rather deserved. Situated in Venice, she was thought in the spirit and the charisma of the city. The (many) books are "tidied up" in gondolas or bathtubs there. In the middle of diverse trinkets, of unusual objects (and of cats).


All visitors of Burano remain intrigued by the many colours and the colorful houses that are reflected into the green waters of channels, by the leaning bell tower, by the tranquility and the calmness with which the elderly ladies embroider original Burano lace by their tombolo (or lace pillow), while they are laughing and chatting in squares among them. It seems to be in paradise. Children who dart freely with their bicycles, balconies with multicolored flowers, fishermen who put up fresh fish from their traditional boats.
