  • The Aquarium is located on the sea at the foot of the monastery of Paleokastritsa. The entrance ticket costs €6 per person and the guided tour lasts approximately one hour. The Guide doesn't speak Italian but decided to follow the tour in English. The route is divided into two parts, one is the visit to the Aquarium and the other at rettiliario, recommended the tour, because the guide is helpful and passionate. There is a chance to touch the iguana George and harmless snakes. Visit fun, interesting, recommended to all both adults and children.
