You are spending a weekend in Genoa with the whole family. And you’re looking for things to see with children in the city of Lanterna. The first place that you have to visit is the famous Aquarium of Genoa: it’s the biggest and the more important in Italy, and in its 39 thematic tanks are preserved sharks and penguins, turtles, dolphins and other animal species.
The city of the Lanterna is built in a peculiar zone, between the Apennines mountains and the Ligurian Sea. For this reason, in the city there are several panoramic viewpoints. One of these is the spianata Castelletto (“Castelletto esplanade”), one of the places to see in Genoa you’re your children. Here the kids can quietly play under the trees. In addition there is a elevator that reaches the esplanade.
