Stocking Up at the Macceleria

The quaint Tuscan town of Lucca is filled with butcher shops similar to this one (known as a "macceleria" in Italian) selling delicious fresh meat like rabbit and pork, fresh poultry like pheasant and quail, and cured meats like salami and prosciutto.

The Italian macceleria is a bit different than American butcher shops because the macceleria has fewer pre-butchered meats - if you ask for some prosciutto, for example, the butcher slices off what you need, as thick or think as you want it, while you wait. This particular macceleria also offered a nice selection of cheeses, making it a great place to pick up a perfect picnic lunch.
