Best Buccellato in Lucca
One of the best tastes of a trip to Lucca is Buccellato, a sweet bread flavored with anise and raisins. I discovered the best version of it here, a bakery that's been run by the same family since 1881. It was delicious with an espresso to fortify me for a bike ride around the town's famous walls. And, since it keeps for a few days, it's a perfect unique souvenir to carry home to keep the flavors of Italy with me as I unpack.
