Mediterranean[edit]

Article says: The sea borders the countries Italy, France, and Monaco, and the Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean Seas

Surely the Ligurian AND the Tyrrhenian are both part of the Mediterranean. Ordinary Person 23:10, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Well, the Ligurian Sea is part of the Mediterranean Sea. However, it can also be considered a seperate sea. It depends on the person you ask. Most people will say: yes, the Ligurian Sea is part of the Mediterranean, just as (for example) the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ionian Sea are. However, the major part of the Mediterranean has no "alternative name" and is just known as the "Mediterranean Sea". So in a sence the text of the article is true: "the Ligurian Sea borders the Mediterranean Sea", despite the fact that it can also be considred a part of that sea.

Elba?[edit]

I hesitate to change this because the original author may know something I'm missing. But when it says "between the Italian Riviera (Liguria and Tuscany) and the islands of Corsica and Elba," isn't the mention of Elba misleading? According to the description of the extent of the Ligurian Sea (which, I was glad to see, agrees with the description of the Tyrrhenian Sea as to where their boundary is), isn't Elba entirely within the Tyrrhenian Sea? The boundary goes almost directly north from the north end of Corsica, and Elba is east of Corsica. Is that not right? Wouldn't it be more correct just to say "between the Italian Riviera ... and Corsica"? Gms3591 (talk) 11:01, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Quite right. I will make some amendments. Bazonka (talk) 16:21, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
