This is the most beautiful little piazza.Each side is lined with delis, wine shops, craft shops, galleries, lace and linen shops etc. The restaurants seemed beautiful and we found a couple of bakeries which sold delicious and well priced goods. The piazza had a air of serenity. I would love to return there. Our two young children loved it also.

We were staying within walking distance of this piazza and loved everything about it - the shops and restaurants, the church,the covered walkways which were great when it was so hot!

We got lost finding the Verrazzano winery and drove through here first. Later, we made sure to go back to see the little shops and restaurants. What a DARLING town center.

Beautiful heart of Greve in Chianti. Loved all the little shops and cafes. Butcher intimidating to look at but they were quite friendly if you actually went in. Loved the little bakery just outside the square at the church end - divine goodies. Saturday Market not really for tourists - mostly cheap clothes and stuff you can get anywhere -... More

A relaxing place with many good restaurants and enoteca's. And do not forget the sidestreet Via Roma where there is a fine wine & food shop named Il Vinaino.

Do yor best to visit it on a market day! In order to soak up the atmosphere. It would charm any food lover, wine experts in particular.

Was quite hot when we visited (almost 34 deg C so the restaurants were very inviting. One of them had a garden and lovely to relax there. My only "complaint" -- menus in Tuscany are limited to pizzas and pastas -- would love more variety and different cuisines.

A small Piazza with a bunch of restaurants. Greve does not have the charm of many of the Tuscan towns. Only go there specifically for wine tasting

It was a beautiful day in Tuscany. Found this Piazza near the bus stop and had a bunch of stores filled with prosciutto and cheeses!

Great atmosphere. Market on Saturday morning is very atmospheric. To have breakfast in one of the bars in the piazza followed by a browse of the market is a perfect combination. A very festive atmosphere
