Greve in Chianti

Considered by many as the gate into Chianti, this lively town is famous for its particularly shaped piazza or square that has been market place for the castles and walled villages in the surroundings since the Middle Ages. The square has a triangular shape andlarge porticos along three sides that protect from sun and rain while shopping. In the center stands the bronze staue of Giovanni da Verrazzano, explorer that discovered the Bay of New York. At the top of the square stands the Church of S. Croce, originally a medieval church remodeled according to Renaissance Revival architectural style, displays a few precious works of sacred art including the triptych depicting Madonna and Saints by Bicci di Lorenzo.

Greve presents many different places where you can taste Chianti wine and enjoy local food. The porticos host many workshops, wine bars and restaurants. One that requires mentions is the Antica Macelleria Falorni, a historical butcher shop that sells only typical products produced in Chianti.
