Genoa Aquarium

Highly recommended
Europe's largest aquarium has various observation points that give you the impression of being submerged in the recreated ecosystems: the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, a tropical rainforest and a coral reef. Seals, manatees, sharks, penguins, jellyfish, coral reef fish, rays and other species are to be found alongside the dozen dolphins kept here: see them playing and follow them by moving along the underground itinerary. It is also worth going to the spherical, glass-paned Biosphere.
