Just walking to the aquarium in Geneva’s traditional yet super modernised port is a joy. Red brick buildings, a ferris wheel, palm tree lined wide boulevard and the centrepiece of the magnificent port filled with boats of all shapes and sizes and screaming with history.

For decades, Genoa has been the main show of Italian ports, and with this nautical heritage, it would be a pity not to have a place for all things sea remembered here. At the ‘Porto Antico’, or ancient port, a whole day can be spent in or outdoors strolling, learning, eating or drinking good Italian coffee, but a visit to the aquarium is a must- for singles, couples, kids the like.

An extremely well organised space, the Genoa aquarium entrance is situated on the largest of the pedestrian boulevards leading to a main square, useful on busier days where queuing can busy up the area. All situated in the ‘cento storicò’, the old town, both the marine museum and aquarium can be found, Genoa is no longer with the reputation of being an old and dirty port city. The port, a salute to the grandiose of Genova from yesteryear, houses an impressive old ship from the film pirates of 1985 and sits proudly next to the larger luxury boating vessels that make up the majority of the vessels nowadays, perfectly situated for admiring while you wait in

line to gain entry into the aquarium.

As Western Europe’s largest aquarium, the city of Genoa has not skimped out on neither the range of species nor the man made habitation.

Let's step inside.

Seahorses, eels, sharks and penguins, the list of species is second to none, with over 70 ecosystems and 12,000 sea specimens and marine life. On entering the aquarium you are transported well away from the bustling port over ground and are immediately hit with the tranquility that both water and animals bring. Be impressed with the ‘The dance of the jellyfish’ or a close encounter in the Cetacean Pavilion with the dolphins in one of the four open-air tanks. If penguins are your thing then take a one and a half hour tour with the penguin keeps who will show you everything from food preparation to feeding! The Genoa aquarium has been the go-to aquarium since 1992 and well worth a visit on your stay to this magnificent city.
