Travel Tips for Chiavari
Nervi - on your way to Genua
Nervi is a place I saw first , when I passed by in the train to Genua, and all the coastline was lighted, including the 2 small castellos and so decided to go there with Chiara the other day.
Nervi has a lovely path along the coast with a lot of palmtrees and other great vegetation.
My favorite place was the rosary, that looked great already in march, although just a few roses survived the winter.
Lots of squirrels will be in the park and do NOT miss the interesting sign at the entrance of the park, saying the park will be open, till the bell rings... ;-))
Well, THEN you better run, run, run quickly...
Go to Vernazza & 5terre
Vernazza is the most beautiful village of the so called " Cinque terre "
Lots of colorfull houses, all built into a small and narrow bay.
Fisherboats, a narrow path leading through the terraces on the hills taking you to the next village Monterosso...
I drove by car to Portovenere and from there I made a daycruise to the Cinque Terre.
The ship stayed there of 60 minutes - time enough for for first overview, but not enough to explore everything...
Taking the train from Chiavari is certainly the best, as you may buy a dayticket for all of the 5terre, including the train to and between all villages, the small buses that run through some of them and the entrance-fee to the National Park and "Via dell Amore" - the romantic path along the coastline up and down the hills...

I don't remember Chiavari but...
"The only thing I remember about Chiavari"
My parents and I stayed in Rome between the autumn months of 1958, and left Italy in August, 196O. My mother, Fevziye Bartu,
a Turkish opera singer (mezzo-soprano), after winning a chanting contest, performed Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana at Opera Teatro Eliseo in 1959. My father, Nur Bartu, an actor at the State Theatre in Ankara at the time, and I, now a 54 year old man, accompanied her during her stay in Italy.
I really do not remember the exact date of our stay in Chiavari. As far as I recall, we had rented a room at the building seen behind us in the second picture. The only thing I remember is the mini-parachutes flown from the aircraft which were dropping small gifts onto the beach where we used to take our baths.
It has been very long. My parents passed away. I am still living. Chiavari will live forever.

The name Chiavari means "the key to the valleys", as it lies at the bottom of five valleys: Aveto, Fontanabuona, Sturla, Graveglia and Petronio. Through these valleys you can reach the Ligurian Appennines, where you can enjoy a wonderful view in the shade of dozens of Mediterranean trees like mimosas, magnolias and agaves.
In Chiavari you will find many palm-trees and agaves along the seafront, where people like walking and cycling in the refreshing breeze all year round.
Don't worry..she is my accomplice in shopping!!...we had great time shopping in Outlet Store.......and we'll do again, surely!
But the last time we spent time only chatting, tasting fantastic food and smelling the sea breeze.......
