In the Italian version of "Survivor" contestants were deprived of all the usual comforts of home but given an espresso machine so they could have their coffee as usual - anything else would be barbaric. Accordingly, the Venetian day begins and ends with coffee. So drink your coffee like the Venetians do - stand at the counter or sit at an outdoor table of the corner bar and watch the world go by. (In Italy a "bar" and a "caffè" are the same and serve hot and cold drinks as well as alcohol.)
A primer: caffè means coffee, and Italian standard issue is what we call espresso - short and strong. Cappuccino is a foamy half-and-half of espresso and steamed milk; cocoa powder (cacao) on top is acceptable, cinnamon is not. If you're thinking of having a cappuccino in the evening think again - Venetians drink only caffè or caffè macchiato (with a spot of steamed milk) after lunch.
Enjoy learning how to be a Venetian.
