Chiavari Old Town and its Artisans

A unique experience where you will do a walking tour of Chiavari old village and its ancients shops. Chiavari is an underestimated, very authentic small town in the Portofino Gulf. You will visit the old town centre. This village is characterized by its famous narrow arcaded streets called “Carruggi”, which are lined with elegant and exclusive old shops as the pasticceria, and where a bustling market is also held every Friday.

Here you will enter some ancient local artisan’s workshop such as the one who still continues a very old tradition: he makes by hand the wooden stamps used to produce the typical local pasta shapes known as Corzetti. For lunch you’ll also taste some typical Ligurian street food such as “farinata”, a chick pea cake (not included).
