  • that's a nice must walk with children. many aquariums... There are crocodiles! If! aquariums are available in size small which is still rare enough to be noticed, and the entry is not very expensive. a great idea when you want to hide in and out when it's too hot or too cold with children. very accessible by public transport.

  • Don't miss with the visit of the Palace (ticket € 9) aquarium; It is small but very nice with beautiful specimens of fish including lesraies; personally, I didn't know that there are so many colors and different patterns with stripes. On the other hand, disappointed by the space of the crocodiles; I don't really see the interest given the limited space they have to move.
