DISCOVER THE AQUARIUM OF GENOVA
Aquarium of Genoa (in Italian: Acquario di Genova) is the largest aquarium in Italy and the second largest in Europe. Located in the old harbor (Ponte Spinola)and built by the genoese architect Renzo Piano. It is reached fromthe Rail station Principe, from the subway S Giorgio and from the motorway exit Genova ovest.
The aquarium was originally built for Genoa Expo '92 (International Exhibition Genoa '92 Colombo '92), celebrating 500 years since the Genoa sailor Christopher Columbus discovered the new world.Later the aquarium was expanded.
The course of about 2 hours and 30 minutes winds up a total area of 9,700 square meters. The original body (39 tanks) provides a path through to tanks with fish and many reptiles, and reconstruct the original natural environment of each species with clear educational aims.
Of particular value are the five large tanks, which can be seen from both floors of the aquarium, which house respectively dolphins, sharks, seals, manatees and turtles as well as countless other species. The dolphins are not always visible to the public because they are moved to the rotation in 3 tanks, of which only one is visible to the public.
