Montefioralle is a hamlet belonging to the municipality of Greve in Chianti, in Tuscany. It' situated on a hill, in a territory halfway between Florence and Siena, and, just for this, much disputed in the Middle Ages by the two Republics.
The village presents a medieval urban structure and preserves ancient stone houses, part of the castle and most of the walls with three gates.
It's not sure that it can be the birthplace of Amerigo Vespucci, as someone claims; but indeed the noble Vespucci family owned a palace in this village.
