One of the oldest and largest of its kind in Italy, the Milan aquarium houses 36 gigantic pools filled with more than 100 different species of fish, living in recreated environments ranging from the Amazon to the Mediterranean. The main focus of the pools is more towards native Italian fish life, both fresh and saltwater, and plenty of exotic sea life from other continents. The Amazon freshwater pool contains a wonderful exhibit of the infamous piranha. The aquarium hosts events throughout the year suitable for the family and the library is one of the most important resources for marine biology and oceanic studies in Italy.
If you have a kid, you both will appreciate some time in aquarium after sightseeing. The Milan aquarium is one of the oldest and largest in Italy,but not that big though,nice and cosy one. Pools are filled with more than 100 different species of fish, living in recreated environments ranging from the Amazon to the Mediterranean. There's also a terrarium with amphibians. The thematic focus of the pools in the aquarium is weighted towards native Italian fish-life, both marine and freshwater. There is still room for exotic sea life from Africa, Asia and Latin-America though, and the Amazon freshwater pool contains some ferocious piranhas.
The aquarium's library is one of the most important resources for marine biology and oceanic studies in Italy and provides ample access to the public; the entrance is free of charge
