Chiavari is an interesting small town 30 kilometers from Genova. It has an old city center with shops, cafes, restaurants. It is very interesting and very nice; If you pass you can visit it

It's a refreshing experience away from the heart of Genova, about just under an hour by train. The separation of the old part and the sweeping coastal side is distinctly different. The medieval arcades with its shops, cafés, restaurants are an experience to explore. I was lucky enough to be here on a weekend where the main street and two side streets were blocked off to host a market weekend. The delicious wafting of roast pork (almost every 2nd stall sells roast pork), and other delicacies makes one feel festive. The sad part is the "cheap merchandise" being flocked off, but I guess it goes with the time. Chiavari is definitely a destination worth visiting. I was here for 2 weeks and find it accessible to places like Sestri Levante, Santa Margherita & Portofino, or even to the heart of Genova by train. The weather was quite mild even in winter you don't have to rug up. The locals are very friendly even with limited English, in my case lacking the Italian lingo, everyone smiles and happy to help. They have a daily market from about 6:00am to 1pm where you can buy fresh produce. I will definitely come back to Chiavari to visit. It's a great pocket of the Italian Riviera. Mille Grazie!

We spent most of one day wandering back and forth under the colonnades, round and round. So many delightful shops to see. Never got bored as there was such a variety of market squares, statues, historic buildings etc., etc., a miniature pedestrianized city of alleyways. Plenty of bars, cafes, geleterias, many with outside seating. Delightful. Loved the place. Thanks for the memories!

Chiavari is well worth a visit. And not a short one! The old part of the city is very interesting with most of the streets pedestrian zones so it's very easy to stroll through the area under the colonnades or on the street itself. As well there are so many parks and piazzas where you can sit and watch the passing parade. Plenty of good shopping and plenty of places to have coffee or buy some of the best focaccia and pastries ever! The buildings are well-maintained and picturesque. Typical Ligurian architecture with bright colours, painted shutters and some buildings featuring beautifully painted decorations. You have to see it to appreciate it. There is a fruit and vegetable and cheese and salume market every weekday morning in one of the large piazzas. We were also there on a weekend when there was an organic farmers and growers market. A great town!

Title says it all. Quite nice. Even when it rains as you walk under the arcades. Check the dates for the antiques market. Makes it real fun if you love vintage...

If your looking for a great selection of shops where you can walk up and down in any weather, you must come to Chiavari. I consider it one of the best open air shopping centres. From boutiques to bars to what ever you wish to buy.

With 2 archways along the pedestrian street, it’s an ideal way to shop and look at the old buildings when it’s very hot and sunny.
