The aquarium is nice but small. It took us less than half an hour to see everything, and that included the much praised "touch pool" which was much less special than I had expected after reading the reviews I this site. I would still recommend the place for a visit, but keep your expectations low and you might be pleasantly... More

I was dubious about visiting after reading the negative reviews here, but I'm glad we ignored them! We were very pleasantly surprised. It's a lovely tranquil and air conditioned experience. The main tank is very impressive, and the smaller tanks very informative. Our 7 year old son loved the touching pool, (as we did too!) and the very friendly Ray.... More

Not much to see so 10euro is expensive, the childrens area is hotter than an oven meaning the slide and swings are unusable on a hot day. they need some shade. The displays all need a step so children can see in side the tanks.

A great and clean place, not very large, but well kept. The children liked it and we had fab coffee in the coffee shop by the entrance.

We visited on a windswept day in April when we were virtually the only people there. Our little 3 year old boy is fascinated by all sea creatures and whilst this aquarium is smaller than some you might find he thought it was great. The touching pool was by far and away his favourite bit. The café was great too... More

Compared to others, larger I visited this one is one of the smallest, but has one big central pool. Whole visit was very informative. Price is not so high. Our kids loved "touching" pools, where the ambient was quite hot because there are many windows, but who cares when touching live fish is so much fun.

The tickest at 10 euros for an adult was fairly pricey based on the number and variety of different fish on display. All the displays are in Italian and English so it is informative. The aquarium was also very hot so you did not feel like lingering, and the cafe was stiffling as all windows - great for a view,... More
