Interesting little shops, etc.

Worth a walk round. Lots of little shops and cafes in little arcades. You can feel the history about it.

We visited Chiavari by chance and what a charming town it turned out to be, the centro storico had some charming historical buildings and it felt very bright and clean, there was and antique market in the town which was brilliant and it is only a short walk to the sea.

Very beautiful area with local shops and cafes. Nice little roads all around the center . I would recommend taking a piece of focaccia and simply take a look in the nearby.

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.

A few steps away from the beach and the marina, historical shops, and very good food. I had a wonderful Darjeeling tea at Don Tea Time, and spectacular traditional food at Osteria Luchin (a restaurant that has been with the same ownership since 1906, and never changed the menu!). This is a truly hidden gem.

The historical city center is a perfect spot, even during rainy days though the arcades cover, most of the "shopping district". A various amount of cafés and restaurants also fullfills the feeling, that her you'll have everything you need.
