The Aquarium of Livorno is the most important in Tuscany, recently renovated, it houses 2,000 animals of 300 different species.
Located in scenic location on the waterfront of the city, where is located the famous Terrazza Mascagni, the Aquarium of Livorno is a destination not to be missed especially if you are traveling with children.
The aquarium aims to raise public awareness on the need for conservation and sustainable management of the marine environment by promoting responsible behavior. In the tanks are in fact hosted many species at risk of extinction or whose marine habitat is severely threatened by human activity.
