Sea Life in Jesolo (town near to Venice, north Italy) is situated in complex with shopping centre in one of main ceossing in town. Car navigation didn ´t know the attraction and address but it was easy to find it. Signiture is relatively good. You can park your car in garage of shopping centre what I feel in sunny Italy as a big advantage and it is free of charge.
I have visited the same attraction 4 months ago in London (next to the London Eye), so I can easy compare. Our tickets for 2 adults and 1 small child was 32 EUR including 20% sale! So it is rather expensive. For entrance ticket must pay all children above 3 years.
The elementary difference from Sea Life in London was that in London there were many many visitors - realy lot of - we were still waiting there in many queues, there were no space to move arond you and we couldn' t see anything. Here it was kind surprise. Nearly no visitors and the motion was comfortable even with baby buggy.
The biggest disapointment is that the sightseeing tour in Sea Life Jesolo is too short. It is absolutely not comparable with the attraction in London. We haven 't spent there even any 1 hour - for 32 EUR it is unbelievably expensive. It is also missing the main attraction what was in London - pinguins. Children were disapointed that pinguins were missing in Jesolo. In addition to it - in advertise brochures there were pictures of pinguins.
All staff of Sea Life Jesolo were kind and able to speak good English and German.

thank you for your comment. It is important in my opinion to reply to a couple of points you highlighted during your visit in our attraction. First of all, the price: if you visited other SEA LIFE attractions around the world, the price is more or less in line. SEA LIFE London Aquarium lead price is over 18 pounds, and our price is slightly cheaper as we know our exhibition is slightly smaller, and our ticket is valid for the whole day and not for just one tour. Besides this, I kindly remind you that by buying online your tickets you can save up to 30% and that promotional vouchers are available at hotel and campings receptions in Jesolo and surrounding holiday destinations. Regarding penguins, I'm afraid you're misunderstanding our brochures with the ones from another attraction here in Jesolo, that has penguins. I can guarantee that we don't advertise creatures we don't have, unless they are in quarantene due to medical treatments. I hope to see you again in our aquarium.
