The ancient village and castle of Montefioralle was an important stronghold during the wars between Florence and Siena. Situated in the hills above Greve in Chianti, it is characteristic for its one street that completely encircles the church of S. Stefano (inside an interesting 13th century Madonna and 14th and 16th century Florentine paintings): a simple building is traditionally indicated as the house of Amerigo Vespucci. The church of S. Cresci can also be visited close by.
