Among the most famous libraries in Venice is the Biblioteca Marciana, also known as Libreria Sansoviniana, the most important in Venice and among the largest in Italy, but there are many others. Also worth mentioning is the Libreria Acqua Alta, which has become a real attraction of Venice thanks to its peculiarity of being very subject to high water. For this reason many books inside are arranged in columns inside old gondolas or even bathtubs, to be protected from high tide.
