“Very nice place on the market square”

Ancient Butcher Shop
Attraction details
Reviewed June 20, 2015

Great snacks from own production
Great way to taste some Chianti wines, although you need to fetch it yourself using some prepaid card. Actually fun to do, but sometimes the dispenser machines are a bit difficult to operate.. Some people had problems.
They use some kind of self-service approach: you are supposed to order at the till, but this is not always communicated correctly.. saw some US customers leave as they felt they were ignored.
Can be a busy place because all tours that visit Greve are also going for this beautiful shop.

Thank Johann S

We stopped thanks to an amazing tour guide who recommended this place. I was thinking how great can a butcher shop be? It was freaking amazing! It was large and mesmerizing to watch the butchers at work. Don't drive by Greve!

If you ever find yourself in Greve, in the town square, look for the stuffed wild boar and century old butcher tables. Once you have found them, enter a maze of meats and cheeses that would appeal to the most discerning of tastes. The smells and visual feast will leave you reeling. A must see!!!!

If you visit Greve in Chianti then make sure you find this place in the piazza. . This place is fasciniating with prosciutto hanging from the ceiling and salami and cheeses everywhere. Take your time to amble around the butcher shop and see it all. A real experience!

Do not miss this place if you visit Greve in Chianti. This place is Amazing from all the prosciutto hanging from the ceiling to the salami and cheeses. They have little bites for you to taste! Just to walk around the butcher shop and see all the variety is breath taking. LOVE THIS PLACE. I wish we had something like this at home.
