We wandered around Greve for awhile trying to find the town centre and the town was pretty dead ... until we stumbled upon Piazza Matteotti and what I believe was a twice annually ceramics market. We loved the cafes and shops lining the square and the market stalls throughout the centre of the square. I think the entire town must... More

Visit the buyer especially if it's hot. The cheese cellar is the coolest place in town. Not much else really of interest. There is a pleasaant ceramics shop but mostly other wise rather tacky souvernir shops. Worth a visit if you are close but don't make a special trip.

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.
