During your semester abroad with ILP, make sure you take the chance to visit Venice, Italy. You are going to want to ride those amazing canals and eat all the gelato you can, but you should also visit "The Most Beautiful Bookshop in the World".

So, what makes this bookstore so unique? It made almost entirely of books .... even the stairs!
The bookstore has a huge selection of new and used books (in almost every language) that are set out on other unique shelving options including gondolas, boats, and tanks. The ambiance and atmosphere of the bookstore are what makes the place a must see.
Located close to St. Mark's square, you have to stop by and snap a few pictures of this hidden gem. If you're having a hard time finding it, just give the address to a taxi driver and they'll get you there.
