  • This is definitely the best aquarium I've seen. The one in Barcelona (claimed to be the biggest in Europe) is much less interesting. An advice to make your visit amazing: check the times when they make dolphin shows (at the upper floor): it is short, but truly a must see! There's one every day at 12 for example. Plan 1 hour to see everything before the dolphin pool, then the show (about 15 minutes), and then the rest. In total with a 11 y.o. kid we spent there about 2:15-2:30. They also have nice interactive elements. Also do not forget to visit Paleo Aquarium (it has a separate entrance on the left side of the building if you look at the main entrance). You can access it with your normal aquarium ticket, no additional costs. They have a cool virtual reality tour and a nice small exhibition as well.

  • It is so beautiful!! I've been twice and the first time I was in awe. I love the ocean and marine life it was an amazing experience. The second time the aquarium had added new things and it was like seeing it for the first time all over again. Strongly recommended it is breathtaking!

  • Beautiful place! Friendly and helpful staff and there are so many wonderful animals it's easy to spend hours here. I spent 5 here! The restaurant here is also very delicious!

  • This is the 6 time I visited this aquarium in my life, and the 2 nd in the last 3 years. Always leave me enchanted. Excellent place to visit for adults and children. The pool where you can touch the fish is my favourite.

  • The aquarium itself is impressive. A variety of exhibits, interesting to watch the beautiful creatures. But, wow, the cost of visiting is too high. We probably spent two hours here, each paying about 25 euros. And there are many weird sponsorship activities in progress, providing ice cream and spongebob? Nice here But it costs too much. I really like this aquarium, it's big enough, and perhaps most importantly the Dolphin Aquarium (one of them has been swimming around me smiling) and an interactive swimming pool where you can find a little yellow croaker. The only downside is that I think its price of 25 euros is expensive and you have to pay 3 euros for a 3-minute virtual reality video and 11 euros for dinosaurs if you so desire. I've always had complex emotions for aquariums and zoos, both beautiful and funny, but some animals that used to have plenty of space in the wild were kept in small "cages." I do not regret it, because it is beautiful and interesting. Most species seem to be living well (except for penguins). Dolphins, both male and female, do not look sad, but I'm not an expert, and it looks like a small space here. In short, a beautiful place, I am particularly fascinated by manatees, but it is still an aquarium. Aquarium is great. The beginning of pregnancy to see the hippocampus is spectacular. I have never seen before. Jellyfish is extraordinary. It is a unique experience to see so many different colored lights reflected through their bodies. Sharks, sturgeons, manatees, a huge space for children to provide great learning opportunities. We noticed that older guests were overwhelmed by the noise and excitement. Go in the middle of the week, do not go on Saturdays. This is necessary when visiting Genoa. Here is an average aquarium. It is advertised as Europe's largest aquarium, but it does not seem to be that vast. Other aquariums seem to be doing well - the Penguins enclosure is a good example. The scenery here is a bit poor. Each person needs 25 euro - even my 13-year-old daughter is an adult price, which is an overpriced way.
