The Biosphere is a stunning glass sphere close to Genoa's Aquarium in the Old Port. Known affectionately as 'The Glass Bubble' it was designed by superstar architect Renzo Piano for the July 2001 G8 Meeting. This tropical paradise is home to over 150 species of plants, as well as a rainforest that protects numerous birds, butterflies, and reptiles.

Calling all wannabe sailors and aspiring sea captains. The Galata Museo del Mare in Genoa offers 12,000 m2 of exhibition space covering man's longtime relationship with the sea. The building itself is the oldest surviving construction in the dockyard of the old Republic. It's a worthwhile attraction for anyone interested in the ocean, immigration, and the history of Genoa.
