List of English exonyms for Italian toponyms

This list of English exonyms for Italian toponyms is a compilation of Italian toponyms, names of cities, regions, rivers, mountains and other geographical features, in an Italian-speaking area (principally in Italy and Switzerland) which have traditional English exonyms.

In the case of regions, rivers and mountains, the English exonyms are always the best choice for those writing in English. Some lesser-known exonyms of cities have begun to retreat in favour of the endonyms. These are marked below with asterisk.
