Every city that we travel to, we look to see if there is an aquarium, and visit it. Genoa was no exception.It is situated near the bus, train and ferry stations - not dissimilar to Darling Harbour in Sydney. It is very modern, and the building has been superbly laid out, and has taken full advantage of multi-levels and full glass to show some of the creatures at all angles - fascinating to see them diving below and swimming above!
There are many exhibits which specialise in fish from the particular region - and this makes it a unique experience, because whilst there are some that you will have seen before, there are many that you will not.
You can happily spend the day there, making it extremely good value for money. In addition, right along side of it, is the actual galleon used in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies - a marvel to behold. It is quite breathtaking to see the actual size, and you almost expect Johnny Depp to come rushing around the corner!!
So, if you are in Genoa - a very under-rated city, visit the aquarium and you will definitely not be disappointed.
