I agree this attraction may be slightly on the expensive side, but I found it was completely worth it! We paid for the standard ticket, and entered just after 4:30pm and to our surprise, the aquarium was empty! This was definitely the highlight of my visit to Genoa because we had beaten the crowds. We got to see everything at... More

We paid around 127€ for 2 adults and a child(other child was free) this was for the acquario village, the aqurium itself was very basic we wished we would have only paid for the aquirum because the rest of the "village" was not worth the money at all!!!. There is a big pirate ship that is not included in the... More

This aquarium was the nicest part of my genoan experience. Its price is totaly worth what can be seen on the inside of the aquarium. It is the largest facility in europe (perhaps even worldwide) that stores many fish. There are many things that can be seen there. This place is great for marine biologists and families. Would definitely go... More

Bad value for money at 25€ per persoon, which doesnt even include many of the side attractions, like virtual reality goggles or access to the botanical garden, which cost extra.

Our family really likes aquariums, and we have visited many all over the world. We found this aquarium in Genoa to be a very well done aquarium. It is deceptively large, with almost 30 different exhibits. It is well organized, with a defined path to take a visitor through all of the exhibits. There is a wide variety of sea... More

Quite big and impressive aquarium with affordable fees to be paid for entrance. You can spend there easily 3 hours and enjoy looking at sharks and dolphins.

Its a nice aquarium easy to explore and good for 2 - 3 hours getaway with kids. The variety is not as complete as Osaka Aquarium in Japan or San diego Seaworld. But its still nice to visit for the kids.

We spent a couple of hours in the Aquarium including a stop off at the cafe for refreshments. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The dolphin show was absolutely great.
