It was probably the best thing I did when I was in Genova. It is also fine when the weather is not so good. You can spend a couple of hours there and see so many nice fish and animals. I recommend you to visit it when you are in Genova. I visited it with my mum but it's an... More

Very interesting place, not only for kids but for the adults too. The aquarium is very big and we had a really fun time.

This is one of the best Aquariums I have ever visited in Europe, although, of course there are better ones in Japan and USA: the content is interesting and well presented (clean tanks, corridors with external views, rooms with different atmospheres, etc.). I only had one hour for the visit (that was enough for me as I was visiting alone),... More

Always good for kids. Went with my parents. Didn't like seeing they have dolphins. Very sad to see creatures like that in small enclosures. I don't believe aquariums should house animals like dolphins anymore... However it is a large aquarium with lots to do and see and a good thing to do with children. Just not my thing.

Very nice layout, large fish tanks and good explanations. A lot of species. Worth a visit when in Genoa. We usually visit aquariums and this time we saw a lot of species we had never seen before.

Wherever we go we always visit the aquarium if there is one in that city. That is why we have chosen to see the aquarium in Genoa even though we had just two days. And we were so happy we did it. The architecture is very interesting that half of the building is actually a ship. The tanks are placed... More

Located in the old port. It is relative expensive and the staff is not very serviceable, but it certainly worth a visit. Based on other aquariums we've visited, I would say that it's average, still not boring. Interesting sea life, but the feeling was that someone tried to "stretch" the exhibitions, meaning that you see a lot of water, but... More
