This is a list of rivers which are at least partially located in Italy. They are organized according to what body of water they drain into, with the exceptions of Sicily and Sardinia, which are listed separately. At the bottom all of the rivers are listed alphabetically.
For the purposes of this list, the Italian rivers draining into the Adriatic Sea will begin at the coastal border between Italy and Slovenia and will follow the Adriatic coast of Italy until it reaches Santa Maria di Leuca. Beyond this point, rivers empty into the Ionian Sea rather than the Adriatic. The rivers are ordered according to how far along the coast the river mouth is from the Italian/Slovenian border, the first river having its mouth the closest to the border and the last being closest to Santa Maria di Leuca.
The tributaries of the Po are organized into right- and left-hand tributaries. The lists are ordered from the river closest to the source of the Po to the river closest to the mouth of the Po.
For the purposes of this list, the Italian rivers draining into the Ionian Sea will begin at Santa Maria di Leuca in the east and will extend to the Strait of Messina in the west. Sicilian rivers are excluded because they are listed in their own section below. The rivers are ordered according to how far east their mouth is, the first river having the easternmost mouth and the last having the westernmost mouth.
For the purposes of this list, the Italian rivers draining into the Tyrrhenian Sea will begin at the Strait of Messina in the south and extend north up to San Pietro Point near Portovenere. Sicilian and Sardinian rivers are excluded from this list because those rivers are in their own sections below. The rivers are ordered according to how far south their mouth is, the first river having the southernmost mouth and the last having the northernmost mouth.
For the purposes of this list, the Italian rivers draining into the Ligurian Sea will begin at San Pietro Point near Portovenere in the east and will extend to the border with France near Monaco. Sardinian rivers are excluded from this list because those rivers are in their own section below. The rivers are ordered according to how close their mouth is to San Pietro Point. The river with its mouth closest to this geographic point is listed first and rivers further away from this point are listed in the order in which their mouth empties into the sea as one proceeds along the coast up to the border with France.
