This is one of the best destinations to see a wine town in the Chianti (Classico) region. This town square is shaped like a funnel; everything leading to a small church at the narrow end. Centered is found an interesting statue dedicated to a well known name in New York; Giovanni Verrazzano, the man the straits were named for in... More

Quite unique by shape, this piazza in Chianti’s main town, from my point of view is one of the most beautiful in Italy (and I have seen many).Picturesque arcaded sidewalks will enable the visitor to stroll along the numerous nice shops and restaurants, protecting you from the sun in hot Tuscan summers. However, as the piazza is not a pedestrian... More

Fun little town center with good gelato and good food. Central to many things to see and do. This is where Verrazano the explorer comes from and a good launch pad to visit other little Tuscan towns. There is lodging any many restaurants, but now it is well known to tourists so everything is getting a little pricey.

On the Sunday we visited a craft market was in progress, with both food and non food products available. Very relaxed ambience, to browse around. The piazza is bounded by a range of shops and eateries.

We were fortunate to visit Greve during the annual wine festival, which was held in Piazza Matteotti. It was the perfect location for the event as you could take a break from the tastings to visit the various shops or restaurants in the Piazza.

Stop over here for lunch and did a stroll around. Love the small piazza. Our timing wasn't good as there is a wine festival coming up with booths around the piazza but we couldn't make it. All the little shops are very cute and lovely :)

My husband and I visited Piazza Matteotti every night for dinner. We ate at La Cantina four nights. Allesandro is a great host and his staff is very nice. Great pizza! You must visit them. They also have gelato! Plus they open early. We also ate at Mangiando Mangiando one night. The rigatoni and bruschetta was very good. We also... More

The piazza is always buzzing! Saturday is a general market with loads of fresh vegetables, fish, cheese etc as well as some good quality clothing, and a lot of not so high quality stuff that you see in markets everywhere now. We were lucky that we arrived just before the last sunday of the month, when there is another market... More

We recently stayed near Greve and visited the Piazza a couple of times. Wednesdays are Market Days which add a fun element of tent merchants without making things too crowded. (I imagine wine festival weekend will bring the crowds though.) There is something for everyone in this Piazza from an old church, gift shops, jewelry stores, restaurants, flower shop, ceramics,...
