  • In the biosphere there is nothing to see, except an aquatic turtle and two goldfish, amid coffee trees and elder, even very good. The purported ibises patrolling far away (when they decide to show up). Warm and clammy, no guide service if not for groups. No brochure at the entrance, just a bored clerk at checkout that tells you "you have to look a little animals". I do not know where, because there aren't any. Parrots, exotic birds and butterflies have been moved to the Aquarium, but to see them is asked for an extra charge of 2 Euros to the already expensive ticket. Admission to the biosphere (around 3 minutes adage): 5 euros. In short, the usual nasty habit of stripping the tourists, that just seems to fail in Genoa be eradicated. At least during maintenance work should be closed to the public.

  • The idea itself of a ball floating on the water with inside of plants and animals is fascinating. Remember that the world owes almost everything to the water of which it is composed for the most part. The problem is that the end result is disappointing. The structure is actually small. The animals featured are some ibis and a few turtles. The hotel at the time of our visit was just restored and yet there it was raining inside, with the keeper had to cover your desk with a makeshift tarpaulin. Visit should be made free of charge and not at the exorbitant price demanded!

  • A ball inside which you can find wild animals (birds that roam freely, a small turtle and the stick insect) and numerous plants including coffee, pepper, pineapple, banana and the plant from which are derived chewing gum. Visit duration is very short

  • closed - like everything else on monday cool looking from the outside. Looks like it needs to be squeegied - all that damp. reminds me of the big globe thing in Queens, NY.
  • Beware of the parrot but otherwise worth visiting, impressive structure and doesn't take too long to see everything inside.
  • Little and amazing place. Built by Renzo Piano it is a Little tropical world whit many type of plants and animal like big parrots or particular lizard.
  • Very small place cost 5€ entry. Price is too expensive as there is nothing much inside
  • small place good looking view from the inside
