Cappuccino

There is absolutely nothing that can beat an authentic Italian cappuccino. I've always been a big fan of coffee and though many parts of the world are known for their different coffee varieties and beans...the cappuccino has always been a favourite of mine (and incidentally I discovered the cappuccino actually originated from Vienna!). When in Italy, it doesn't matter where you go, be it a fancy 100-year-old cafe or the little corner snack bar with two tables out front, the cappuccinos they serve are always top-knotch. I must've drunk about 42 cups in my 2 week stay and not once did it disappoint.

However for a typical Italian, the consider cappuccinos to be breakfast so they never order them past 11 am but even if you expose yourself as a tourist by breaking that “rule”, who cares! What is there to shoot with a cup of coffee you might think? Loads! The froth from a steaming tazza, the foam mustache you get from the first sip, the look of content on some-ones face when they’ve sampled the perfect combination and the ambiance and atmosphere of any outdoor terrace that serves good coffee. My favourite is taking snaps of a cup sitting beside postcards I’ve written to friends and family. There really is something to say about sitting out, having a coffee and watching people pass by. It’s definitely a favourite past-time. If I had to specify certain places to get good cappuccinos (plus lovely atmosphere) in Italy, I would recommend Gilli Cafe in Florence, Dorando in San Gimignano, Harry’s Bar in Venice and any cafe/resto around Piazza Navona in Rome, Piazza Tasso in Sorrento and Piazza Campo in Siena. Grab a cup and don’t forget your Lomos!
