Acquario di Livorno approaches to the world of education, catering a multilevel and multi grade offer of educational activities, created by the Educational Department of Costa Edutainment S.p.A., following the principle of educational entertainment and privileging a deductive approach to learning.

Activities range from guided tour to themed tours, from didactical laboratories to the special "Behind the scenes"  tour, each one fulfilling to the Acquario di Livorno's mission to increase environmental  awareness to protection and knowledge of the environment (in particular the marine) among general public and young generations.
Activities are held for minimum 15 paying persons. 



The spectacular replicas of the different environments make of Acquario di Livorno the perfect place for learning: teachers can guide their classes in analysis and study of special topics related to marine environment.

In respect of the educational and environmental awareness that distinguishes Acquario di Livorno, students will be active participants in observingcomparing and thinking with the aim of raising in them a proactive behaviour towards environmental conservation and protection.

It will be an ideal opportunity to prepare one subsequent visit to the Aquarium or participation in one of our focuses: the type of lesson can be agreed with the teachers based on the program they are carrying out, adapting it to the school age of the students.
