  • Nice attraction definitely to see if you come to Valencia. Perhaps a little overrated, certainly exciting the two tunnels where you find yourself surrounded by sharks and fish of all kinds. But in my opinion Genoa has no comparison.

  • Very cool aquarium. I wish I would have purchased a ticket online in advance, but everything still worked out fine. This place is huge and there is so much to see. I was there on a very hot day but all the buildings had great AC and there were many places to find shade.
  • Nicely laid out place, but not worth the entrance fee, however they spend some of it on conservation which makes up for the expensive ticket. Last time have been to one in Copenhagen for less money and could barely finish looking at everything in 5 hours. Here you can finish in 2... Value for money is not great, but the animals look happy enough... As much as you can tell from the expression of a fish :)
