Apennins was a département of the First French Empire in present-day Italy. Named after the Apennine Mountains, it was formed in 1805, when the Ligurian Republic (formerly the Republic of Genoa) was annexed to France. Its capital was Chiavari.
The département was disbanded after the defeat of Napoleon in 1814. It was followed by a brief restoration of the Ligurian Republic, but at the Congress of Vienna the old territory of Genoa was awarded to the Kingdom of Sardinia. Its territory is now divided between the Italian provinces of Genoa, La Spezia, Massa-Carrara and Parma.
It was divided into the following arrondissements and cantons (situation 1812):
- Chiavari, cantons: Chiavari, Borzonasca, Lavagna, Moconesi, Rapallo, Santo Stefano d'Aveto, Sestri Levante and Varese Ligure.
- Pontremoli, cantons: Pontremoli, Bagnone, Berceto, Borgo Val di Taro, Compiano, Filattiera, Groppoli and Terrarossa.
