GenoaGenoa Aquarium

Genoa Aquarium - Italy's largest aquarium

The Aquarium of Genoa, nestled in the city's historic Old Port, is a treasure trove of Europe's richest aquatic biodiversity. As an ode to Genoa's maritime heritage, this riveting aquarium hosts over 12,000 animals from 400 diverse species. With 70 unique exhibits spread across 27,000 square meters, every corner has a story to tell. Plan your adventure with ticket prices, options, and tips for an unforgettable visit.

Things to know before buying tickets to Aquarium of Genoa

  • Considering the aquarium is one of Genoa's top highlights, it sees long ticket lines, especially troublesome during the peak season. Booking online tickets in advance is highly recommended for a smooth, joyous experience from the get-go.

  • Booking online requires you to choose the time and date of your visit. Do note that you can't reschedule these tickets, so pick wisely. An ideal time would be within the first few hours so you can appreciate our brilliant and widely diverse marine ecosystem in a relatively quiet setting. The whole visit takes around 2:30-3 hours. Take a break in between and grab some delicious complimentary Genoese focaccia at the Tender Café (included in your ticket at just an extra €1).

  • The Aquarium of Genoa is part of the larger AcquarioVillage World complex, which includes The City of Children and Youth, Bigo, Biosphere, and the Aquarium itself. Please note that the Genoa Aquarium ticket only grants access to the aquarium and does not include admission to other attractions. You'll need separate tickets for each.

  • The entire aquarium complex is wheelchair accessible, with very minimal architectural barriers. Ramps and elevators are available for a seamless experience for all visitors. People with disabilities can claim a reduced ticket price with proper documentation. For children between ages 4-12, a child ticket would be a more economical option. In cases of complete disability, an accompanying person does not need to purchase a ticket.

  • Children (4 to 12 years) can enjoy a €10 discount on the ticket, while senior citizens (above 65 years) are eligible for a €5 discount. Children under 3 can don't need tickets.

  • Please note that no pets are allowed inside the aquarium, except for guide dogs for blind visitors. If you need to leave your pet behind, there are dog sitting services available in the area that will take good care of your furry friends while you're exploring the underwater world.
