The Old Port and the Aquarium: the new waterfront redisegned by Renzo Piano |
Genova: le Strade Nuove e il sistema dei Palazzi dei Rolli iscritto nella Lista del Patrimonio mondiale UNESCO

In 1992, the redevelopment of the Old Port by the famous Genoese architect Renzo Piano becomes an opportunity to convert a part of the port to tourist area, enabling residents and tourists to reclaim this space, once closed to all except the workers of the harbour.

In this large square on the sea, overlooking the continuous and frenetic activity of docks and slopes, you can walk, jog with the Segway or visit the area with the train Galata Express; you can have a drink, eat all day long, go shopping, attend events and concerts, climb up the Bigo the panoramic lift, visit the Biosphere, the City of Children and Youth, the Luzzati Museum, the National Museum of Antartide ... and of course the famous Aquarium with the largest exhibit of aquatic biodiversity in Europe.

A recently renovated pathway welcomes and immerses the visitor in an impressive naturalistic reality with breath-taking views on the Porto Antico area. From here you can sail for an exciting excursion offshore dedicated to whale watch, plunging into waves, sun and exciting comments of qualified biologists, or choose for an enjoyable tour of the harbour by boat, discovering the city from a quite different perspective.

Tickets for tourist services to live and discover the city can be purchased online or at IAT Tourist Offices.
