Upon arrival it is clear that this is a small aquarium, but very well presented. We spent just over an hour here, and thought that was pretty good value for €10 each as we felt we were contributing to the important works this place does,...More

Small but well worth a visit. Lovely story about the turtle they saved and lots to see. My 3 daughters had a great time and particularly loved the big fish and shark. The gift shop could be so much bigger and better. 18 euros for...More

We made the combo: snorkeling + guided tour of the aquarium. The guide, Cinzia, was excellent! In 1h of snorkeling we saw 20+ species of fish, many of which we also saw later at the aquarium. The sea was perfectly flat and the mistral wind...More

It took about an hour to go round the acquarium. The building is very light and airy with big display tanks of fish, a turtle, small sharks and coral. A very enjoyable and informative visit.

Was worth to visit the aquarium, the price is a bit expensive (10 eur per person) vs the 30 minutes experience, although the story about the turtle was really moving, i am happy that they saved him. Once worth to see this place!

There is a beautiful, large water tank in the middle of the acquarium with sharks and a turtle. Also, you can (safely) touch small sharks in a special tank. The ticket price is €10 though...a bit too high I think.
