The Genoa Aquarium, about 12.5 miles (20 km) from our hotel, is one of the most popular destinations.
Inspiring and modern, it is Italy's largest, the second largest in Europe and the ninth largest in the world.
Opened in 1992, it has an area of 104,400 square feet (9,700 square meters) with as many as 71 tanks
hosting 800 different sea species and a total of 10,000 different specimens of sea mammals, reptiles and fish.
Thanks to exact reconstructions of marine habitats,
visitors can learn about this environment and wander through open spaces where they can touch animals too.
Get ready for a fascinating journey to tropical seas, to colder ones, and to the Mediterranean.
Do not miss the five vast areas hosting dolphins, sharks, seals, sea cows, and turtles.
