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.

Attempted to visit on 6th April. As we tried to enter the lady working there started screaming at us to close the door. It felt totally unwelcoming and if I was the employer I would want to know that the staff are mentally stable. We...More

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 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.

once you go in you are greeted by a sweet parrot(my opinion is the highlight of this attraction)the remaining attraction is nothing special.

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.
