Behind the scenes

Come “Behind the Scenes at Livorno Aquarium and discover what’s hidden behind our display tanks!

On this guided visit - led by expert and qualified staff members - you’ll discover all the secrets and curiosities of the technical area of Livorno Aquarium, like the care tanks used as nurseries where the various species hosted by the aquarium grow until they reach a size suitable for life in the display tanks, where new arrivals are kept in quarantine, and where sick animals receive any necessary medical treatments.


In addition there are complex technical systems, the control area used to monitor and check their correct operation, the kitchen where food is prepared and conserved, and the laboratory where the necessary chemical and physical analyses on tank water are carried out.

The visit ends with access to the technical area over the display tanks, with views from above of the rear of the shipwreck tank and the Mediterranean and Tropical itineraries of the Gregotti galleries. After the guided “Behind the Scenes” circuit, you can start or continue the visit to the normal aquarium itinerary.
