Tuscany : Greve in Chianti & the Tuscan navigator Giovanni da Verrazzano

Another time in Greve for me but the first one for my American group : to see the triangular shaped square, this time with no tourists  – except us – as  at the beginning of March is still low season and just  because of this , more  lovely as a typical Tuscan hamlet where to stop after a wine tasting.

Love the arcades with all the small shops around the square perimeter , as a tiny Bologna & the Giovanni da Verrazzano’s statue  to reminder us that a Tuscan man – born just in Greve in Chianti – was the navigator who  discovered the New York’s  bay in 1524 .(I have already written another post about the castle licated just few km away from here).

Enjoyed a great cappuccino looking outside the bar & feeling as a foreign myself!😂😂😂
