Born in Bibbiena, Tuscany, Giaccherini started his professional career at Romagna team Cesena. He scored 15 goals in the group stages of the Campionato Nazionale Primavera in the 2003–04 season. He was then sent out on loan to Lega Pro clubs Forli, Bellaria Igea and Pavia for 4 seasons. Cesena was relegated to the Lega Pro Prima Divisione in 2008. Giaccherini returned to Cesena where he was partnered with Simone Motta in attack. Cesena came top of the Prima Divisione in June 2009. Due to their good defensive record Cesena finished as runner-up in the 2009–10 Serie B season and was therefore promoted to Serie A, where Giaccherini was partnered with Guilherme do Prado, Dominique Malonga, Ezequiel Schelotto and Cristian Bucchi in attack, none of whom managed to hit double figures.
In August 2010 Cesena offered a new contract to Giaccherini as his current contract was due to expire in 2012.
In the 2010–11 Serie A season Giaccherini remained a first-choice starter and was partnered with wing-forward Schelotto and Erjon Bogdani. The club once again reached the top of the table but went on a winless run after the third match as a result of which Luis Jiménez replaced Schelotto as Giaccherini's new attacking partner. Giaccherini managed to score in 7 matches that season, including a goal in a 2-0 win against Milan and once in a 2-3 lose to Inter. He also scored a brace on 6 March as Cesena beat Sampdoria 3-2, and managed 3 more goals in the last 7 matches of the season.
He made 4 assists in his maiden Serie A season which was one short of Luca Ceccarelli.
On 25 August 2011, Giaccherini officially transferred to Juventus on a €3 million co-ownership with Cesena retaining 50% of his contract. He made his competitive debut for Juventus against Parma. On 8 December 2011, he scored his first goal for the Bianconeri, an angled solo effort in a 2-1 win over Bologna in the Coppa Italia. He scored his first Serie A goal for the club on January 21, 2012, scoring the second in a 2-0 victory over Atalanta on a volley from Luca Marrone. Three days later he scored the first goal in Juventus' 3-0 Coppa Italia victory against Roma. Due to injuries and suspensions to first choice centre midfielders Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal, Conte has played him in a more central role to good effect.
