Not to be missed as it is such a huge and fascinating aquarium with some most incredible creatures. There is such a variety from tiny creatures to very large sharks and dolphins. The penguins are incredible to watch. There are also piranhas and scary snakes and a monstrous turtle.

This is one of the most amazing experience you can do. everything is properly organized and there are many fishes of all kinds. don't miss it! take also the chance to stroll in the historical centre of Genoa, to Boccadasse (pitoresque fishermen place) and city view from Castelletto.

If you want to spend one beautiful day with your family, this could be the right place. An attraction that hosts lots of people every year. In addiction to this, it's possible to walk into Porto di Genova outside Acquario. Fantastic, 5 stars!!

The aquarium is located on the seashore and is completely built inside an old ship. Even-though the entrance is bit pricey, one can expect the high level of content. There's a restaurant nearby the dolphins aquarium and it gives an unique experience. The total tour may last for a good two hours.

I expected more from this aquarium. I thought there live much more animals and fish, especially for 25 euro entrance ticket. I was amazed by Manatees, have never seen them in zoo, they are rare animals. Aquarium is worth a visit if you ready to pay.
