Chiavari, the heart of the Tigullio coastline, is one of the main Ligurian towns.
It is located in the alluvial plain formed by the River Entella and stands in a favourable position for communications with the Po valley and the 5 valleys: Aveto, Fontanabuona, Sturla, Graveglia and Petronio.
Chiavari can be reached from the Aurelia state road, which enjoys panoramic views of incomparable beauty along the way. The town is on a human scale and its lively old town is well-known for its characteristic porticos. In the Chiavarese area, there is a great variety of landscapes, luxuriant nature and a strong sense of traditions, above all in local craftsmanship.
A lively centre of trade in the Middle Ages, in modern times it focused primarily on its tourist vocation, which was further boosted in 1970s with the new marina.
