It's important to temper expectations as you walk into this aquarium. Established in 1905, it is one of Europe's oldest, and while it was quite the sensation at that time, there are obviously far better aquariums now. Still, it is housed in a lovely neo-classical building of hand painted tiles and delicate friezes. It has over 100 species of marine life, most of which focus on Italian coasts and waterways. Check out the to the statue of Neptune, the Roman God of Water, in front of the aquarium. Check the aquarium website for upcoming special events and exhibits.
