The Civic Aquarium of Milan is the third-oldest aquarium in Europe and attracts as many people for its Art Nouveau splendor as it does for the sea life swimming around inside.
Built in 1905 for the Milan International expo, it is located on the edge of Sempione Park. Its glorious facade features a Neptune statue designed by sculptor Oreste Labò. The aquarium also houses a popular public library, with one of the most prestigious collections of marine biology publications in the country. Don't miss a visit!
