Chiavari, Italy, a very pleasant seaside town near Genoa, last March.

The sidewalks are all covered with these arched structures which have some name I didn't catch.

A beautiful pebbly beach - unfortunately a little cool for swimming yet.

Mostly pleasure boats, but still a fishing port as well.

An old picnic tower? On an estate donated to the town, and turned into a botanical garden.

Some very nice houses here.

A mix of architectural styles.

The Chiavari Palace, facing one of the many town squares.

I'm a sucker for town plaza markets.
