About this location
The Italian Riviera region
From Sestri Levante to Santa Margherita Ligure, the Tigullio coastline is strewn with a trail of seaside resorts that have boasted a distinguished tourism tradition for over two hundred years. This area offers vast beaches providing full services and equipment to visitors, spacious, full-service harbours, cutting-edge sports facilities, and top-of-the-line, elegant accommodations. Along the Tigullio coastline, all this is combined with beautiful seascapes, bustling towns, and charming sea floors, lapped by favourable currents.
Sailing, surfing, horseback riding and golfing enthusiasts will find an ideal setting in which to practice their sports, both in the area's natural environment and its sports facilities. The coastline also teams with trendy clubs, shops and high quality handcrafts stores, thus making for enjoyable shopping and nightlife experiences.
Rapallo and Chiavari are actual cities, famous for both their thriving tourist trade and charming handcrafts, such as lace (to which Rapallo has devoted a museum), furniture (such as Chiavari's charming wooden chairs), and the traditional damask and velvet that Zoagli still produces to this day.
Santa Margherita, between Rapallo and Portofino, boasts hotels and conference centres of international fame. In Sestri Levante, the beauty of the Bay of Silence (baia del Silenzio) defies description, making it one of the most spectacular sights along the coast. The hills along the gulf are strewn with scenic views, beginning with the Sanctuary of Montallegro, which may be reached by means of Rapallo's convenient funicular railway
Among the main cities in Liguria, Chiavari, the town once known as Clavarium ("key to the valleys"), is situated at the centre of the Tigullio Gulf. The fortified town of Chiavari was founded in 1178, when the Genoese adopted a policy of expansion towards the East in order to contain the power of the Fieschis. You can still see the ruins of the castle built that was in 1147. On the site of the ancient citadel, a fifteenth-century Genoese structure whose crinellated tower still survives, there now stands the Palazzo di Giustizia (1886).
Next to the historic municipal building and the bishop's place, the seat of the Diocesan Museum, stands the sanctuary of Nostra Signora dell'Orto, a seventeenth-century cathedral: its interior holds many eighteenth-century works of art from the monasteries that were suppressed following the French Revolution.
In the heart of the old town, porticoed Via Martiri della Liberazione has retained its vocation for commerce: this is the ancient "straight alley" which became the most representative street of the bourgeoisie in the mid-fourteenth century. Some very old handicraft activities still survive in Chiavari - the production of "campanino" chairs and macramé lace-making, which can be admired in the little market that is open every month in the old town streets.
Chiavari's leisure port can berth about 450 boats
