Greve in Chianti
Greve is considered the most typical of the towns in the Chianti Classico area. It is located half way between Florence and Siena. Unlike the majority of Chianti towns, Greve is located on the floor of a valley in half-way along the Chiantigiana road that runs from Florence to Siena. The old part of the village was built around the monastery of San Francesco and the triangular market square. The area surrounding Greve is well known for its beauty while the town offers the noteworthy 19th century Matteotti Square, the beautiful loggias and the smaller Santa Croce Square.
Greve in Chianti prides itself on its Slow Status.

Lamole in the hills a few minutes’ drive off the main road from Greve to Panzano. It has high quality and stylish dishes, although a little overpriced. Several unusual choices provide an interesting menu to choose from. Avoid holidays or busy days as service can be a bit slow. It is well liked by the locals and has many returning local clients, always a good sign of decent food. The drive up to Lamole and a visit of the village is worth it.
