  • Just landed in Genoa with the cruise, the first thing I saw is the imposing and superbus Aquarium! Have other fish to a myriad of even a room that projects a 4 d short film! Very nice, a journey to discover another world! PS there are even penguins although they look robots because of the same moves! The first feeling I had in fact after all those marine spectacle was the price they must pay and unfair! Excited for the show, sad at the end of it! I highly recommend it to fans and not

  • 8 hours parking overpriced. They should do a flat rate for one day. Gain equal because the Aquarium of Genoa is extraordinary

  • I have absolutely enjoyed stay closed in the parking lot for an hour because the bus stop at the outlet has blocked within about fifty people, with no one in charge of guarding the parking fee. Icing on the cake at the exit of the parking lot having been delayed another hour after paying, I spend another 2 to raise the bar.
