Great Bookstores Worth a Visit

Bookshops are a traveller’s best friend: they provide convenient shelter and diversion in bad weather, they’re a reliable source of maps, notebooks, and travel guides. They often host readings and other cultural events.

They are some of the most inspiring places in the world. In among the shelves, under dimmed lights, you can relax and let your imagination flight.  From Venice to Mexico City, check out some of the most interesting bookshops!
