Again, something close to our...

Again, something close to our hearts. Public Toilets. Last I was in Venice, 'toilet' was a dirty word. We did our best to not need to go. They were terrible. Now it's all so different. They're so clean, meticulously so - it almost puts our home to shame. It costs 0.5 euro to go, but it's money well spent. And we never encountered a single 'hole in the ground'. And if you need it - you can buy a season ticket, so then you can go as often as you want! :-)

OK, not so much a 'cultural tip', but something very close to all of our hearts. Internet Cafe's. The best that I found in Venice is the VeNice (Ve Nice, get it) internet cafe. It's on Rio Terra Lista Di Spagna, next door to the Hotel Principe (and not far from the railway station). Internet acccess is reasonably priced, and you pay for what you have used - you don't have to block-buy 1/2 hour sessions or whatever (but beware you're not there all day and end up blowing your budget).
Another service they provide is the transfer of your digital pics onto CD. So if you're filling up your memory cards, or simply want a backup, you can do it here. It's only 5 euros to do the transfer (of as many pics as you want). If you can't connect your camera directly to the PC (USB cable has wrong connection, etc) then they will hire you a multi-format card reader for about 4 Euro. Also, they'll sell you blank CD's for 1.5 Euro. It's a great (and quite cheap) service.
