  • For the first time in my life I saw my daughter get excited to the nth degree for the beautiful landscape that we experienced at the Aquarium. Many species of fish present, it took them three hours to visit all footer. The dolphin show was the icing on the cake. Absolutely recommended

  • Italian Manager Aquarium from Como went mainly to see the dolphins, well the 18 Jan went to purchase, and no one told you that the Dolphin tank was not visible for a water leak, we waited until the 12 by 9 when we walked in thinking to see the dolphin show, we were about 20 people , well at 12:30 I called in their offices and they didn't know anything about the missed show, whereupon they invented a phantom Trade Union Assembly, but I'll ask it the minutes so we do sindacalista being reckoned
