Description

The Ligurian Sea is an arm of the Mediterranean Sea, between the Italian Riviera (Liguria and Tuscany) and the islands of Corsica and Elba. The sea is probably named after the ancient Ligures people.
The sea borders the countries Italy, France, and Monaco. In the east the sea borders the Tyrrhenian Sea, while in the west it borders the Mediterranian Sea proper. Genoa is the most prominent city in the area. The northwest coast is noted for its scenic beauty and favourable climate.

The Ligurian Sea is called "Mar Ligure" in Italian and "Mer Ligurienne" in French.

Les limites arbitraires de la mer Ligure sont en général définies comme suit :
  • limite occidentale : suivant une ligne joignant le cap Ferrat près de Nice et la Pointe de la Revellata près de Calvi en Haute-Corse ;
  • limite orientale : suivant une ligne reliant le Cap corse (au niveau de Capu Sagru) et le promontoire de Piombino.

Elle borde la France, l'Italie et la principauté de Monaco. Elle se trouve au nord de la mer Tyrrhénienne et à l'est du Golfe du Lion.

Il mar Ligure è una parte del mar Mediterraneo centro-settentrionale. Morfologicamente è limitato ad occidente da un linea immaginaria che parte da cap Ferrat presso Nizza fino a Punta di Revellata vicino Calvi nella Corsica settentrionale, mentre il limite orientale può essere individuato tra capo Corso e il promontorio di Piombino.
