Greve in Chianti, seat of the Comune di Greve in Chianti, is the market town of the Chianti Classico wine zone of Tuscany, Italy, which consists of a large part of the hilly territory between Florence and Sienna. Greve in Chianti provides opportunities for a unique style of vacation where you can find a relaxing place to stay in one of the many beautifully restored farmhouses of the area and yet still be within easy reach of the art cities such as Florence, Siena, Lucca and Pisa.
Chianti is the name of a wine – we always say the “best” wine in Tuscany – and also the name of the area of Tuscany, Italy, where this Chianti wine is produced. Although the Tuscan wine zone known as Chianti, Italy, is no longer a political administrative area, it retains its unique identity, as it has done for the past thousand years. Chianti, Italy, is a small part of the province of Tuscany in central Italy, located in part between the “art cities” of Florence to the north and Sienna to the south. Chianti provides probably the best base for visits to these famous Tuscan cities, as well as for exploring the towns, villages, castles and gardens of Tuscany.
