    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.

    Exceptional place displaying a range of local sea species, reptiles, snakes etc. Very kind staff that will show you around, tell interesting facts and answer all of your questions. You can even pet lizards and iguanas, hold sea urchins and a sea cucumber in your hands. You can later see majority of the species on the coral reefs right next to Corfu aquarium. Definitely recommend this place for everyone!
