The Biosfera is a glass and steel structure, 20 meters in diameter, designed by Renzo Piano, that looks like it is floating on the water. This is a small but rich botanical garden with rare examples of tropical trees where many species of birds fly freely, and there are tortoises, fish and insects. A computerized system checks the climate inside the sphere. An exciting visit to the Biosphere forest, guided by expert personnel, allows you to experience the unique tropical environment.

Il Galata Museo del Mare is the biggest maritime museum of the Mediterranean. Technological and innovative in its layout, the museum is home to faithful reconstructions and a section dedicated to Memory and Immigration. Over 6000 original artifacts allow you to make an extraordinary voyage through the history of navigation. The Nazario Sauro is the biggest Italian submarine that may be visited in the water, and it opens its hatches for an exciting and interactive dive.

Genoa is this and much more.  Navigate the site, discover what the city has to offer and organize your stay in Genoa.
