The drive through the Chianti region is lovely and Piazza Matteotti makes a fine place to stop, relax and have a simple lunch. It is triangular and surrounded by a mixture of differently painted properties. There are two sulptures, one of the old explorer and another modern one. At ground level you have a selection of produce shops and restaurants.... More

Numbr of shops and cafes around, monument of Verazzano in the middle and nice palazzo publico with the sculpture of a Polish artist Igor Mitoraj living somewhere in the neighborhood. Worth seeing and having e.g. a variety of bruschettas with the glass of Chianti... More

Lots of restaurants and small (tourist) shops at the square, but also some artesanal shops are there. It is worth a stroll.

We ate lunch at the butcher's on the square, which thankfully wasn't closed during siesta time. We walked around the square first, and I think by this part of our trip we had done enough window shopping in touristy shops, so we were a little bored. But it is a beautiful square to sit and watch while you drink a... More

We drove to Greve In chianti along the winding roads thru the vineyards and olive orchards. greve itself is pretty and Piazza was nice with restaurants and shops. We had lunch at the pizzeria and the margherita pizza was big and delicious. definitely worth visiting..

It is a covered small shopping district in the middle of Greve. It has domed walkways similar to Bologna. Quite touristy but with plenty of restaurants and bars. Came across a lovely linen store carrying linen tablecloths and napkins. This shop was Valoriani, which also carries great towels and other gifts. A good place to stop and collect yourself.

Excellent stop while exploring Tuscany's wine country. Great shops and local restaurants around a central piazza. The only "meat museum" I have encountered anywhere
