Works for the brand new high-tech aquarium of Rome are almost over, and in June 2015 it will be officially open to public. The Eternal City’s aquarium will be a unique one of its kind, the biggest of the country and one of the main in Europe. The structure was planned in such a way that it won’t have any environmental impact though entirely built under the EUR lake. The 16000 square meters are divided in two sections: the traditional one will host living fishes, which visitors will admire from special acrylic tunnels to give the feeling of a true immersion into the deep. The other sector will be dedicated to scientific and educational purposes: here complementary areas such as a 400 seats auditorium, a space for 3D shows and tanks for highly sophisticated robot-fishes.
This colossal structure is named Mediterraneum – The Aquarium of Rome, and aims at raising visitors’ awareness on ecological issues starting from the observation of Nature’s complexity.
Yes Hotel is at walking distance from metro station Castro Pretorio (line B) to reach EUR quarter and its aquarium!
