Walk from the ancient port about 4/5 km It is worth the visit if only for the view even if '' ruined '' by shipping containers. if you are not used to walking and climbing stairs it is challenging

Very interesting aquarium, too bad all those prams and small children who were crying. I believe that the visit to the Aquarium is only pleasant for children aged 6/7 years.

Nice aquarium and interesting for kids. Whatch out to print out your tickets otherwise will ask you to print them on their office and you will lose another 15 minutes.

Walk from the Aquarium to the Lantern, following the signs posted all along the way… .. impossible to go wrong… beautiful organization!

Journey to Genoa, stop at the Lantern, then the Aquarium; second day Fantacinema, Boccadasse and Doria Natural History Museum.
