Because of its central position and its historical importance Chiavari is defined the Capital of Tigullio; it is in fact an active touristic and commercial city. Chiavari has a wide beach and is characterized by noble buildings pleasantly decorated. Thanks to the mild climate, many people choose it as destination also during the winter.

The ancient nucleus of the city is characterized by narrow roads with porches that form the quarter of the market. The Chiavari historical center can be considered one of the best conserved area of the whole Tigullio. Its city and architectonic structure is in fact much different from the other cities, above all for the presence of numerous porches along the Caruggio Dritto - (Via Martiri della Liberazione).

In the center of Chiavari you can visit the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora dell'Orto, erected after the miraculous apparition of the Vergine Maria in 1610 in the zone where a time there was a garden, the parish Church of San Giovanni Battista, the Church of San Francesco, the Palazzo dei Portici Neri (13th century) and the Palazzo Maschio Torriglia (14th century).
