The Castle of Verrazzano is located about a mile from the center of Greve in Chianti in Italy, and sits on a mountain spur above the River Greve.The castle dates back to an Etruscan, and then Roman, settlement. The Verrazzano family held the castle for centuries and the navigator Giovanni da Verrazzano is said to have been born there in 1485.
