A fantastic aquarium, many types of fish and more. The penguins are beautiful, I would have stayed for hours to watch them. In the restaurant we also eat well.

I don't mind as much spending money on things that improve the world. I wish they would release the dolphins, but it was very well organized and I am happy that I was able to see it.

There is a lot to walk and to learn. You can see plenty of fish with name and description. An interesting picture of marine wildlife that can teach a lot about the sea life. The most attractive point is the dolphin area, and you can...More

Overall excellent experience, which should please both adults and kids. Pros: - beautiful tanks with everything from jellyfish to sharks - good location in the harbor Cons: - dolphin show not as spectacular as similar types of aquariums - could feel expensive for larger families

One of the better aquariums I've seen. Maybe not that modern-looking, but filled with great species in spacious water-tanks. Ticket is not cheap, but in my opinion it's worth it. A must-see. Highly recommended.

Having been to the Boston Aquarium (great), Ripley's here in Toronto (underwhelming) and the two Aquariums in Japan (Okinawa and Osaka, both the best ones), I had a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Acquario di Genova; it did not disappoint. The...More

This is a fairly large Aquarium with quite a few impressive exhibitions of sea life. While it is larger than most aquariums, my feeling is that the ones in Baltimore, USA and in Monterey, USA have more of the Wow factor. Still, this aquarium is...More
