Pocket Guide: Aquarium of Genoa Aquarium of Genoa Hotels

Find a Hotel near the Aquarium of Genoa

For a stay that's right in the heart of the Genoa's revamped harbour area, consider booking a hotel near the must-see Aquarium of Genoa. There are all sorts of places to stay within easy reach, from plush spa hotels overlooking the harbour to pocket-friendly cheap hotels, you’ll find hotels near the aquarium to suit all budgets.

With sweeping ocean views, Italy's largest – and Europe's second largest – aquarium sprawls across almost 33,000 square feet. The attraction was built in 1992 to celebrate 500 years since Genoan explorer Christopher Columbus discovered the New World. Located on a quay jutting out into the water, the aquarium's striking ship-like design was the brainchild of leading Genoese architect Renzo Piano and blends effortlessly into its surroundings.

A Family-Friendly Attraction

The Aquarium of Genoa exhibits more than 500 different species of marine life across a whopping 71 tanks, which stretch from floor-to-ceiling, giving the impression that you're underwater. The huge variety of sea creatures on display include sharks, dolphins, seals, penguins, manatees, mammals and reptiles. Tanks reflect natural environments from the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Amazon and the Indian Ocean. The Caribbean coral reef exhibit is particularly impressive with its colourful fish and oddball sea creatures. As well as offering daily tours, there are also daily dolphin and seal shows that are a hit with kids and adults alike.

Luxury Stays near the Aquarium of Genoa

As well as being home to the popular aquarium, the city's old port area buzzes with bars, restaurants, gelatarie and other waterfront attractions. Kids will love exploring II Galeone Neptune, a pirate ship permanently moored there. The Galata Museo del Mare (the Museum of the Sea) also merits exploration for its life-sized reconstruction of a 17th-century galley ship. Enjoy a stroll along the shimmering harbour and admire the multi-million pound yachts moored there.

As well as being close to Genoa's pretty waterfront, the neighbourhood surrounding the aquarium is within walking distance of the historic centre, making it a great place to base yourself when visiting the city.
