Why are Ceuta and Melilla listed as "territories"? They're an integral part of Spain.

True, either separate them, or change the category to regions.

Territory has a vague meaning, not just what you have in mind here.

This is a really great quiz. Lots of depth. Not knowing much about the coastlines, why are those the ones chosen? I got Dalmatia and the Rivieras (is it worth separating the two? I'm not convinced) but have never heard of the others. Also never heard of the Balearic Sea and only got Tyrrhenian from Diplomacy...

Other possible inclusions- Dubrovnik, Monaco?

Azure coast and Liguria are on opposite sides of Alps, certainly worth separating.

additionally, liguria is conventionally divided into "riviera di levante" (east of Genoa, up to the border with Tuscany) and "riviera di ponente" (west of Genoa, up to the French border).

The names just mean eastern and western respectively as they could be translated as (no pun intended): "riviera of the rising (sun)" and "riviera of the falling (sun)".

"Pat, I'd like to buy a vowel."

"Absolutely not."

"Krk it is then."

Just a heads up. If you're going in alphabetical order, then Tunis and Tripoli are out of order.

The Rhône looks a little off to me, especially near its delta. It looks like it flows through Montpellier on this map.

Hello Rayunexplosion - no, the Rhone is a different river.

Good fun, but did anyone else have trouble with the colours?

This is a good but tough quiz—for pictorially challenged me, anyway. To start with I couldn’t orient myself on the map, so just typed answers to fit the categories until I had a clue. I hope I do better than 25/35 next time I attempt it!
