Myself and a big group of friends visited the Aquarium for a birthday and it proved to be a fun day out even for 20-30 year olds. We lived on a cruise ship that visited every other week. We found cheaper tickets just outside the cruise terminal and there is a clear poster so it's easy to find the office.... More

It took about 45 minutes to see the entire thing thoroughly. It is not worth the admission price but there is not much to do in Genova and it is the 2nd pargest aquarium in Europe.

Overall a great experience and the kids loved it which is a must! The place is well organised and offers a lot to see and do for all ages. The food, given a tourist place, was also good at the bar... Only suggestions: staff up the "wardrobe" area as really poor for time wasted and don't charge extra money for... More

Visited the aquarium with my family and I must confess I was a little disappointed about the general maintenance status of the premises: after my last visit, nearly 15 years ago, it is evident that some fixes are needed. Nothing to complain about the beautiful collection of fish and the organisation of the visit. We had our youngest daughter on... More

Excellent aquarium! Large and well - organized. It was both fun and educational. The downside is the same for any large museum of this kind, which is large groups of school kids. There weren't that many in November, at least, and we were certainly still able to appreciate all the exhibits.

Second time i've visited the aquario di Genova. First time almost no one around and a nice visit to share with kids! Second time, worst time ever! They were so many people around that it was barely possible to see anything, reach anything, and going around with kids was very painful and exhausting (for us and for them)! Considere 2... More

I was amazed. Great place to visit with your family. They have great range of see creatures from fish to crocodyles. Prepare to spend at least 2 hours to see everything.

I am a marine lover so the ticket 25€ seemed worthy for me. As a matter of fact I loved this aquarium because unlike the other zoos, the animals here are happy and healthy here. There are a lot of type of fishes you can see. In addition there is penguin, seals and dolphins. I spend about than twi hours... More
