The Genoa Aquarium
With 71 tanks reproducing marine, lake and land environments, this is the largest aquarium in Europe. There are more than 12,000 specimens of 600 different species of fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds, and invertebrates that call the aquarium home. A visit is like taking an exciting journey through the vastness of the sea: you’ll discover the friendliness of seals, the intelligence of dolphins, the awkwardness of penguins, the disquieting calm of sharks, and how sweet the baby animals that live in the sea truly are. You can even take a behind the scenes look at the work required to maintain the aquarium.
