Loved hanging out on the piazza. Great restaurants and shops. You have to go if for no other reason just to visit the butcher shop. Everyone was extremely friendly.

We stayed in a lovely flat in this Piazza. Loved sitting on our terrace watching the activity in the Piazza. A real neighborhood meeting spot. Fun to watch the kids comes out in the evening and play football (soccer), families chatting and catching up. The best part is their Saturday morning market. So fun to wake up to all this... More

Historic town centre is dotted with outdoor cafes & stores.. great place to while away an evening with a glass (or two) of the Chianti Classico.

Very pretty at night with lots of cafes and shops for a quick browse. Would not recommend staying here, rather just for lunch, dinner, or a quick visit to the very yummy bakery.

We stopped in Greve in Chianti during a day trip to Siena and San Gimignano. The Piazza Matteotti is a nice place to just visit, relax and chill.

Piazza Matteotti, a 5 minute walk from our holiday accommodation, is one of Tuscany's more interesting and laid-back central piazzas. In part this is because of its triangle shape, which offers an unusual perspective for the visitor, and in part because traffic use is quite low, giving pedestrians more latitude. I understand that many of the balconies are a more... More

A statue of Verrazzano oversees the square- I lived close to the Verrazzano bridge in Brooklyn and so it was special to be in his town! Although it was drippy out, the visit was much fun. We went into several shops on the perimeter and were amazed at some. The salami shop Falorni is fabulous. You wish you could take... More

The main piazza of Greve in Chianti, Piazza Matteotti, is dominated by a statue of a local boy made good. The navigator Verrazano -- does that name sound familiar -- also changed the U.S. East Coast by making huge discoveries, which include New York Harbor and the Hudson River. And yes, that famous bridge is named for this bold Italian... More

It was to crowded for my taste. Maybe someone who likes cheap warderobe and stuff will like it, but IMHO this is something to be skipped if you are traveling for sightseeing.
