Aquarium on promenade

Interesting, but not very big. Would have liked to see the tanks overhead and around as in some aquariums. But, an enjoyable experience anyway.

If you are expecting something special this may not be the best bet. On a rainy day to kill some time, it is Ok. Very small. Not much to see. You can get through it in about 15 mintues. In my opinion it is a little expensive for what it offers. Not to mention the parking you have to pay... More

Very small, few aquaria, not really beautiful either and quite expensive. My 7 year old son wasn't even enthusiastic about it. I would not recommend it.

This is a nice little aquarium with reasonably good displays. However as an adult I found the set pieces a little static. Apart from the odd poster indicating (sometimes incorrectly) one or two of the fish/animals you could find in each tank there was little information available. There was an open tank with rays which I think you were supposed... More

Aquario is small, but there is not much more attractions for children, so a must see when in Livorno.

Don't expect a big acquarium, not evn for Italy. But is is a little nice one, worth a visit expecially if you have children, and it is on the Terrazza Mascagni, which is a must in Livorno.

I decided to title this review "team effort" because all aquariums in Italy are team players. For example Genova,Follonica,Sardegna,etc etc....I always keep in mind that places like this help educate humans that everything we do has an effect on things we don't see directly. So, yes it is an average aquarium, but the awareness that they are trying to create... More

I was probably waiting too much from Acquario di Livorno and I was a little bit dissapointed. But anyway this aquarium is worth for visiting, absolutely.
