The Italian Riviera Sights

Acquario di Genova

  • Zoo/Aquarium

Updated 04/10/2014

Fodor's Review

Europe's biggest aquarium, second in the world only to Osaka's in Japan, is the third-most-visited museum in Italy and a must for children. Fifty tanks of marine species, including sea turtles, dolphins, seals, eels, penguins, and sharks, share space with educational displays and re-creations of marine ecosystems, including a tank of coral from the Red Sea. An entire "Aquarium Village" has been created, which also includes a biosphere, hummingbird forest, and interactive

submarine exhibit. If arriving by car, take the Genova Ovest exit from the autostrada.
