The Genoa Aquarium is an aquarium located in Ponte Spinola, in the sixteenth-century ancient port of Genoa. At the time of its inauguration it was the largest in Europe and the second in the world.
The itinerary lasts 2 hours and 30 minutes and includes 39 tanks in addition to the 4 in the open air of the Cetacean Pavilion inaugurated in the summer of 2013.
The tanks host about 15,000 animals of 400 different species including fish, marine mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates in environments that reproduce those native to the individual species with obvious educational purposes.
Four large tanks allow you to observe the animals from two different levels; they host respectively the manatees, sharks of different species, seals, penguins.
Thanks to the new Cetacean Pavilion, the dolphins can be admired both from above, thanks to a large glass wall with an opening window, and from an underwater perspective thanks to the 15-meter-long glass tunnel and the large 20-meter-long acrylic.
