The largest aquarium in Europe

Description

If you like the thought of watching sharks in action, but prefer to stay dry with all your limbs intact, head to the Aquarium of Genoa. Sharks, dolphins, penguins and more reside in Europe's largest aquarium, where 70 rooms house 12,000 animals and sea creatures. Built inside an old ship in the harbor, the entire thing is a visual spectacular!

The ocean and its liveliest residents are ready to make a splash on your trip to Genoa in Europe's biggest (and possibly best) aquarium.

Learn something new about the kind of critters who inhabit our seas as you explore its depths from behind some very thick glass! See the dolphins splashing, the penguins waddling, the sharks circling, the crocs and piranhas snapping, and learn about the rare manatees who gave rise to the myth of mermen and mermaids.

There are 3,000 m2 of exhibition space in this oceanic spectacular, located in what looks like an old ship in the harbor. See 12,000 animals (and 200 plant species) across 70 amazing rooms. Jellyfish, seals and colorful tropical fish will all leave you wanting to learn how to scuba dive... or wanting to head to the nearest sushi restaurant (Sssh).

Learn to love the undersea while aboard a boat in Genoa's old port. This is the life aquatic!
