Esploratori (meaning "scouts") was a type of Italian warship intermediate between destroyers and light cruisers. Before World War II, existing esploratori were reclassified as destroyers (Italian: cacciatorpediniere).

There was a further group of warships (Capitani Romani class), larger than esploratori, classed as esploratori oceanici, that were effectively unarmoured light cruisers.
