What people are saying about Genoa

I bought the ticket with the fixed time and date including lunch! The visit to the aquarium was beautiful! Lots of fish, very nice! Everything clean !! The only flaw is that lunch is not specified when buying what it includes and when you show up they tell you that you have a Ligurian focaccia menu available! Then from focaccia Liguria it became focaccia with wholemeal seeds with pesto, tomatoes and spreadable cheese! They didn't give us the chance to change anything! Unacceptable, especially for my 5-year-old daughter! I had to purchase a separate menu for her! Never again!! Better packed lunch at this point !!!

Visit lasting just over 3 hours with a lunch break and a relaxing break at the dolphin pool. Ticket purchased including lunch. But be careful, the lunch included in the ticket does not include everything you find at fast food but only focaccia. We then opted for the sandwich with cutlet for the children. Drinks included. For the rest: nice!

It was a great tour. We enjoyed it a lot. Got to know not only about the food but about historical facts and everyday day life in genua. I totaly recomend it.

Very interesting, to look at calmly so as not to miss very fascinating details. Next time I will pay the visit accompanied by a guita

It was a wonderful surprise for my puppy ❤️ ❤️ very convenient booking with lunch. What can I say .. It was a pleasant day
