The first historically significant pre-Roman settlements date back to the third century B.C.
After the fifth century, the city—known then as Clavaro—came under the Maritime Republic of Genoa, to which it promised an ironclad alliance.
Part of the historical city walls that the Genoese consuls built in 1167 to defend the city are still visible today.
In subsequent centuries, Clavaro became actively involved in Genoa’s maritime trade and in new artisanal activities.

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, there was a great deal of emigration out of Chiavari towards South America, due mainly to a severe economic crisis in the city and, in fact, throughout the valley in which it was founded; many of the families that emigrated then still reside in South America today. A large number of important religious, civil, and military buildings make it a city of great historical and commercial importance. Many historical names refer to this town as Nino Bixio, Giuseppe Mazzini, Giuseppe Garibaldi.

Chiavari today has a pleasan promenade with numerous bars and restaurants and equipped beaches. Is very nice to walk along his historical and beautiful arcades or "caruggi" lit by windows of many shops, patisseries and bakeries where you can enjoy the delicious Focaccia and typical Panissa.
Dont' miss the famous antique market which attract many visitors, and also Palazzo Rocca, which is a Villa with beautiful gardens and a valuable Museum with paintings of the seventeenth century.
