The purchase of the aquarium and lighthouse cumulative ticket allowed us to save considerably compared to the purchase of single tickets for the two attractions considered. To enter the aquarium it is necessary to book the day and especially the time of the visit; the reservation is very simple and manageable from the official website of the aquarium. No reservations were required for the visit to the lighthouse.

I bought my ticket online having a preferential entry with a timed appointment. Nice experience in visiting the aquarium, hundreds of species present, flora and typical environments from all over the world. Magnificent aquarium, unique in Europe.

Only superlative adjectives! Exciting, very well conceived with an easy path that does not make you miss any of the swimming pools. Well organized, right from booking and online payment. Allow 4 hours for a visit done calmly, savoring it

Εάν βρεθείτε στη Γενοβα πρέπει οπωσδήποτε να επισκεφτείτε το ενυδρείο. Η αγορά των εισιτηρίων από την εφαρμογή είναι πολύ εύκολη και γλύτωσε τε την ουρά στα ταμεία.
