Acquario di Genova is the Aquarium that hosts the most extensive range of aquatic biodiversity in Europe. The exhibition gallery consists of over 70 exhibits and about 12,000 specimen of 600 species, from all the seas of the world.
What to do in Genova?
The tropical garden “Wings flapping” in the Acquario di Genova is a different environment that complements the marine one. Here you can actually enter into the Central America forest and you can watch tropical plants, birds, amphibians, reptiles and multi-coloured butterflies without fences, to take a look at their fascinating life cycle.
Where to see penguins in Genova?
Acquario di Genova is the only aquarium in Europe to host some specimen of invertebrate and Antarctic fish. In the Ice Kingdom, you can also find some specimen of Gentoo penguins and Magellanic penguins. The tank that hosts them reproduces the environment of the Falkland Islands, where both species live together in some periods of the year.
