Overall Guide : Galleria de Palazzo Bianco, housing a significant collection of artefacts, is a stunning sixteenth-century white palace. The place is a major tourist attraction for its alluring architecture. An unusual, but interesting, site is Il Bigo which is famous for being the... more most bizarre structure in Genoa. The most popular feature of the place is the Bigo Panoramic Elevator. In winters, an ice-skating rink is also available. The Acquario de Genoa is the largest aquarium in Europe. It is also the second largest in the world and a must visit for children. The aquarium houses a variety of marine species like sea turtles, eels, dolphins, sharks, penguins and more. Adventure enthusiasts can head to the Motoraduno Internazionale, which is a famous sports exhibition featuring two wheelers of all makes. This three-day event features many Italian and international participants.
