In May my husband and I visited Italy for the first time. One of our favorite stops on our 12-day trip was the charming Tuscan town of Lucca. There were so many things we loved about Lucca: the friendly people, the colorful buildings. One of the best things, though, was the town's delicious wine and food, like the huge selection of meats in this traditional "macelleria," or butcher shop. From salty, cured salami and prosciutto to fresh veal and lamb, Lucca's meats were some of the best we tasted in Italy. On any trip through Tuscany rustic Lucca is not a town to be missed, especially if you enjoy great food and wine.
