Size of this aquarium is impressive with an excellent offering for all ages. The dolphin tank with its multi-level viewing is an excellent idea, we watched them being fed and pampered and then later playing aaround from an impressive gallery consisting of multiple tanks, must see! Be prepared to invest at least 2hours to get in everything, we went with... More

It is the largest aquarium in Italy, a huge home to a wide variety of aquatic creatures, including sharks, dolphins, manatees. I love watching the jelly fish tanks; the jelly fish looks like beautiful laces.

For children and adults absolutely wonderful place. For fans of the sea and animal lovers even more spectacular. Prices are not too high. There are always some interesting additional information for those interested. There is also a restaurant if the kids get hungry. I cannot understand people complaining: yes there are a lot of people and yes you might have... More

We arrived just before the opening time of 9.30 am on a Sunday of a long weekend. There was already a crowd by the time we left 1.5 hours later, there was an enormous queue. my advice is to get there early. The aquarium is huge with many separate exhibits. there were seals, dolphins, sharks , rays, tropical reef fish,... More

the location was easy to find, if you have a family I think it would become an expensive couple of hours so you would want to take your time and get your monies worth, but it does have plenty to offer

If you are spending a few days in Genova (especially in the winter months) I would defiantly recommend visiting the aquarium! You can spend the whole day in there and there is lots to see and do! We took our 3 year old son who is fish mad and he loved every second of it! Only down side was the... More

Was surprised with just how much this aquarium included. Sharks, dolphins, penquins, seals along with a whole lot of other fish and various marine life from around the world. There are plenty of food outlets, places to stop and rest as well as well-maintained toilets. A little pricey but worth the visit if you're in Genoa for more than a... More

Well the Aquarium of Genoa wasn't as Good as I expected. I'm pretty sure it's interesting with kids, but to see the dolphins in a middle sized pool wasn't nice. Even if the Aquarium is informing the guest that the dolphins have many pools to choose from I haven't seen any other pools. A wide variety of fishes and other... More

An excellent place to visit with children. It is well organized and has plenty of useful information on marine life. A really enjoyable outing for the family or even as a solo visit. I went there for the first time in 1999 when my daughter was small but I go there again every time I visit Genova. It is a... More
