  • Great place for kids and not only, able to make you understand the many breeds of fish distributed in the seas of the world with their physical characteristics. Has great bar for moments of refreshment and shops with gorgeous gadgets that do nothing but make you relive the same emotion.-

  • If you go to Genoa, although in this beautiful city there are so many other charms, the Aquarium is an important milestone. The ticket is not cheap: 25 €, however the experience that you live worth the price of admission. It is an attraction of great attraction, so not recommended for weekends or holidays season. We went on a Thursday and there was a lot of people. It takes a little time to visit, especially if you want to watch all the shows of the animals at mealtime. Beautiful representation of dolphins and surprising breeds eat. It was an immersion in nature with all its facets of colors. Nice!!

  • Clearly being in Genoa couldn't visit what is one of the main attractions in the city! The Aquarium is huge, there are infinitely many fish to see and many are beautiful, too bad that there is always a lot of people and then just snap a few pictures becomes a tall order! The greatest of all though is the cost of the ticket: 25 € ... for that figure could at least bring in groups!
