Not much to say about the aquarium. Very well maintained and nice collection of animals. Full recommendation! One thing to be cautious though: there's a butterfly section towards the end for which they charge another 2EUR on top of the already expensive 26EUR entrance fee....More

What a fantastic place to visit. A little pricey ( just short of €100 for 4 adults and 1 child, but well worth every penny. Average time spent there is around 2 and half hours.

Probably the only nice attraction in Genova, very interesting, but it is not as big as i was expected to be and it was almost impossible to see the dolphins, because the exposure was very dark.

Nice location, good for family and friends. Always something new to see. Not so cheap but it is worth to spend a couple of hours there. Easy to reach by car and train.

The place was a swarming throng of excited children. While I should have expected this, it was worse than I imagined and impacted negatively on my experienced. That said, the range of sea creatures wasn’t as expansive as I had expected for the largest aquarium...More

Brilliant family day out. Tickets can be bought online or at the venue. The standard ticket is sufficient for a days activities. The additional aspects are in Italian so may not be worth the extra money. Definitely watch the dolphins - one of the highlights!
