It was included in my ticket to the aquarium. I think it is nice, but it takes 5 minutes to see it, and it's not worth paying the entrance.

I struggled to make my visit last longer than 5 minutes but having walked round twice I gave up. 1 parrot, 5 or 6 ibises and a few fish. No butterflies that I could see.

I would add a waste of time also, but it took us only 3 minutes to walk arround. Unless if you are a botanoligist the place has nothing to offer.

We visited the tiny biosphere because we bought the 5 attraction pass of the Genoa harbour. As others have said, it is very small and only takes a few minutes to go through. If you have the same pass, go, it's still worth it, but...More

Throughout the world there are some very good projects with protecting plant species. But this place I can only assume is an extension to a larger project that is not open to the public. You walk around the circular path and before you know it,...More

It costs 5EUR for an adult and 3,5 for a child. The whole attraction takes 30 seconds to walk around. There's virtually nothing there -a few plants, one big parrot, a few red ones sitting high in the branches and 1 tortoise. A complete rip...More

It is just a time pass thing nothing much to see inside, 5 min total visit time. Better see the surrounding places at Porto Antico.

It took us less than a minute to walk around this attraction. There were NO piranhas, and we saw about 4 ibis and a tortoise. Shocking.
