We had to wait here for a ferry going from Genova to Palermo after being in Milan for a few days and I was not looking forward to it at first. Like what can we do to be entertained for 4 hours while we wait? The aquarium was the most perfect solution. This is probably the most big aquarium I... More

I went to a special function at the aquarium and really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the entire city. It is one of the most non-American cities I have been to. I never even saw a McDonalds! The food in the city was incredible, the people were friendly, and I look forward to coming back and spending even more time... More

It's a real experience for both adults and children! Despite the queue which you might find at the ticket office it's worth a long and attentive visit.

We spent 2 hours with my 3 and 5 year old daughters and they loved it. There was plenty to see, but small enough to manage in a short time. You also see most exhibits from under and over water which provide different perspectives. Finally, most signs are in Italian and English which makes it easy to navigate.
