Montefioralle Review

A tiny hilltop hamlet, about 2 km (1 mi) west of Greve in Chianti, Montefioralle is the ancestral home of Amerigo Vespucci (1454–1512), the mapmaker, navigator, and explorer who named America. (His niece Simonetta may have been the inspiration for Sandro Botticelli's Birth of Venus, painted sometime in the 1480s.)

    Montefioralle Review

    Montefioralle is a place of great charm and is absolutely ideal for children - there are few or no cars on the circular road inside the village and children love to explore the passageways and lanes. There are great photo opportunities at every turn. There is a restaurant and wine merchant but no other shops.
