Typical Tuscan Plazza. Excellent preserved meet and cheese store. Variety of restaurants. Close to Florence, Pisa and Siena Italy. Pleasant place to just hang out. I watched an old lady hanging her laundry over second story terrace railing. She struggled several times almost dropping it below. But age and experience won out.

We paused our journey for a quick coffee, and stayed 3 hours. The piazza is a buzz with local folk and tourists. Our favourite shop was Antica Macellaria Falorni, superb cured meats and cheese.

We visited Greve whilst staying in the region. In fact we had lunch in the Piazza Matteotti which was most pleasant. We sat on a bench and took in the lovely piazza with it's pretty buildings and relaxed atmosphere. There were interesting shops to amble through, including an absolutely amazing butchery that had been there for centuries ( with its... More

Have visted many towns in Tuscany and loved them all for different reasons. But Greve's piazza remains my favourite. Unlike some other Tuscan towns this piazza is still the heart of the town. There is a wonderful market every Saturday. It is a wonderfully spacious triangular shape with lovely collanades providing shade for cafés and shops. love it!

You can drive into this village square without violating any ZTL rules. this triangular square houses a number of restaurants, shops and boutiques. Many of the shops are interesting and offer regional products. Parking is not free inside the square. Nice spot to grab lunch before you head out to explore Chianti.

We stopped here during our wine tour and the main piazza is very quaint with some stores and a large butcher shop that is definitely worth stopping by. We had some Gelato and did some souvenir shopping and were on our way. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth checking out.

Lovely old square in Greve-in-Chianti, with some very pretty, colourful buildings and a butcher's shop going back nearly 300 years. Old church with interesting frescoes. Large torso statue of man with large member; very modern! Good place to eat quality, local Tuscan food.

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
