Ancient coastal town of the Riviera di Levante, Chiavari was an important crossroad just from Roman times. The city name is believed to mean “valleys key” to emphasize its strategic importance of political control of the four valleys which converge on it: Aveto, Fontanabuona, Sturla and Graveglia. At the beginning of the year 1959 a proto-historic necropolis was discovered in the town, which witnesses the presence of a population, that lived in this territory 2700 years ago. Recently (18/02/2014) a part of the ancient medieval walls surronding the old "Cittadella" were discovered. The area is near Via delle Vecchie Mura by Via Martiri della Liberazione.
