Liguria is a narrow stretch of land occupying the upper western coast of Italy between the Ligurian Sea and the meeting-point of the Alps and Apennines.
It is the very variety of the Ligurian coast, its resorts that are famous worldwide for their numerous attractions and the clearness of the water that have inspired such exotic names.
The sea bed of the deep Ligurian Sea is marked by sections of emerged volcanic land: the rocky coastline continues beneath the surface with very steep slopes plummeting down to a maximum depth of 2000 meters.

 Mediterranean On the Rocks: The Sea Within the Sea
Life in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea is especially perilous for its native finback whales and bluefin tuna.
A new marine reserve in the Ligurian Sea, plus ongoing projects to track and analyze whales and tuna here, will help these and other species of marine wildlife survive the challenges of this unique ecosystem.
While finback whales from other parts of the world migrate, sometimes traveling very long distances, the finbacks in the Ligurian Sea appear to be unique in that they stay in the Ligurian during winter.

 ARAT Scientist Notes: IOP 04
Some shallow cumulus were observed over the Ligurian sea in the southern part of the track, more developed over the Appenins.
However, the northern part of the Ligurian sea was rather moist and hazy, but only a small amount of cumulus were observed, as seen in Figure 5 showing the lidar reflectivity over the Ligurian sea, between Pisa and Nice.
The leg over land was cloudy, but the part over the Ligurian sea revealed the lower troposphere to be fairly cloud free (some cumulus (Cu) clouds - top altitude at about 0.5 km as seen in Figure 5) but very hazy.

 Assessment of Skill for Coastal Ocean Transients - ASCOT-02
The island of Elba lies off the western coast of Italy in the Corsican Channel, which connects the Ligurian Sea to the north with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the south (Figure 1).
The dominant large scale general circulation features of these two seas in late September 2000 are indicated in the sea surface temperature of the figure as an elongated cool pool of water (Ligurian Sea cyclonic gyre) and a pair of cool (cyclonic) and warm (anti-cyclonic) gyres in the Tyrrhenian.
The circulation and variabilities of the Corsican Channel are driven interactively by the circulation and variabilities of the south-eastern Ligurian and northern Tyrrhenian, as well as by direct local atmospheric fluxes.

 The Ligurian   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The morphology of the coastline is very varied, with rocky shores alternating with pebble-beaches and sands.
A sort of eternal, infinite duality: a soul split into two, sharply divided between the enterprising industry of the hundreds of seaside resorts and the calm austerity of the small inland townships.
The Ligurian coast runs along far 300 kilometres, but if you count the hidden coves, the headlands and the creeks in the c1iffs, the stare line extends far 450 kilometres.Thus the sea in Liguria has something to suit all tastes, but the region offers many attractions in the 1ess well-known areas inland as well.

 Rustico: Cinque Terre
Perched above the Ligurian Sea on steep, rocky cliffs, the Cinque Terre are an otherworldly combination of wild coastline and rugged mountain, part of UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Sky and sea serve as backdrop to a palette of multi-colored houses in classic Ligurian style: homes are painted ochre, burnt sienna, deep rose, blinding turquoise.
The town boasts the remains of a castle, a medieval tower, twenty or so hotels, and easier car access for those who really want to drive (although I don't suggest it, given how tight and curving the roads are, and how difficult parking is).
