The Acquario di Genova was built on the occasion of the Expo ’92, a celebration of the fifth centenary of the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus, with the intention of restructuring and enhancing an area full of history and traditions, located in the heart of Genoa’s historic centre, the Porto Antico (the old port). It’s the biggest aquarium in Europe.

We had the luck of catching the morming and noon dolphin shows. Seeing one above water and one below water was a unique experience. Same goes for petting the mantra fish. This aquarium provides different sea and water topics which is different from ordinary aquariums.

The acquario is truly brilliant you can spend the whole day here so much to see. The food choices are excellent and tasty. Excellent service. The dolphins were so amazing! A must see when in Genova.

Well worth a visit particularly child friendly. Entry is quite expensive but worth it for the range of display tanks and the quality of the presentation
