  • The Aquarium of Genoa hosts the most extensive range of aquatic biodiversity in Europe
Full description

Acquario di Genova The Aquarium of Genoa hosts the most extensive range of aquatic biodiversity in Europe. The exhibition gallery consists of over 70 exhibits and about 12,000 specimen of 600 species, from all the seas of the world. From the rarest species such as manatees – marine mammals that may be at the origin of the legend of mermaids – to the most famous ones such as dolphins, penguins and sharks – the great predators of the sea; but also jellyfish, seals and multi-coloured tropical fish species. Not far from Porta Soprana, just outside the ancient medieval walls, is the Casa di Colombo, where the discoverer of the Americas lived in his youth. According to archival documents, Domenico Colombo, father of the great navigator, moved here in 1445, when Christopher Columbus was four years old. The ground floor of the house was used as a workshop, and an attic with wooden beams divides it from the upper park, where the rooms for private use were located.

    Some aquariums were dirty and outdated. It was a little bit expensive.
