Owner description: The statue in the middle of this picturesque square is of Giovanni di Verrazzano, the man who discovered New York harbor.

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 glass of wine and eat delicious meats and cheeses. We saw an entire tour bus of American teenagers unload and disperse into the square, and that was our cue to leave. The little shops are cute, but nothing special, and they are small, so when an entire tour bus arrives, it's tough to maneuver. Overall, a nice piazza for lunch.

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.
