What people are saying about Aquarium of Genoa

Overall rating

4.4
(4,447 reviews)

The whole day was awesome. I did not understand why to stop for 40 minutes to eat breakfast at a random place before going to st moritz. It’s a waste of time that could be better to have in st moritz. The train is not the panoramic train but the view is still amazing

Beautiful... the only thing was that at 9.30 the dolphins were in the small tank because they were cleaning the large tank so we couldn't see the dolphin show

great welcome, very well signposted aquarium, varied animals of all kinds. We loved it, we recommend this aquarium

Entertaining boat trip although 1.5 hours each. Cute little harbor village that is worth seeing.

Beautiful, the tour takes 2 and a half to 3 hours, an activity for the whole family.
