A Day Trip To Greve In Chianti, Firenze

A day trip to Greve in Chianti, Firenze

Greve in Chianti

Greve is there, in the world-renowned hilly region of Chianti, about one hour drive from Florence and from Siena, not so far from my little village. Yet I went there for the first time a few weeks ago. Regula was here for a bunch of days to see me and Emiko, so among cultural and foodie explorations of Florence, crazy hours in the kitchen to cater a dinner for a dozen of friends and the quest of the best ice-cream in the region, we managed to squeeze in also a trip to discover Greve.

Greve in Chianti as everything you would expect from an ideal town for a day trip from Siena or from Florence, especially in Spring or in Autumn. Greve has the wine, Chianti is even it its name, and many wineries where you can taste wine and discover stories and passion, it has a landscape that could have been painted by a Renaissance artist, with olive tree woods, vineyards, soft hills, parish churches and farmhouses. Greve is also the town to visit to taste authentic food from the region.

I’ll show you our discoveries with a few pictures and I’ll give you a few hints and names to organize a day trip for your next visit to Tuscany.
