Situated below the castle it had a reasonable selection of fish. The frog seemed a bit lonely... The price of the visit is included in the castle entrance fee

We visited the acquarium with our family and we found it to be small but informative with around 30 exhibits Containing many of the lakefish found in lago Bolsena.The entrance charge for the castle includes the acquarium,and at e5 seems good value.
