Among all the wonderful things to do in Puglia , you cannot fail to go to the Acquario del Salento , a "living museum" which last year received the certificate of excellence from the Trip Advisor website for being one of the most popular tourism choices of 2020.
In fact, everyone talks about this Lecce aquarium, which offers a complete overview of the fauna and flora of the region through a tour of 5 rooms that allow you to get to know the different species through a closer contact.
The different stages of this "immersive journey" include the exploration of the species that live in the various levels of the sea. In the first room, you will meet animals that hide from the light such as magnoselle, large crustaceans and the Bonellia Viridis. In the second, you will see animals of the sandy and rocky coast typical of the area, such as white bream, salpe, sea bream and damselfish. In the third room you will see the creatures of the open sea, especially the very intelligent Octopus Vulgaris and the carnivorous starfish. The fourth room, meanwhile, will be the setting for deep sea life forms such as triggerfish, pencil urchins, scholars, menole and sea cucumbers. And finally, there will be a multimedia room with documentary videos, meetings and various educational activities.
This company from southern Italy invites you to participate in a guided tour led by an animal-loving specialist who will be happy to explain all the peculiarities so that you can leave the aquarium with a new perception of the marine world.
Your guide will always be ready to answer questions, especially from younger visitors. Indeed, children of all ages can take part in these activities. The idea is to involve all family members in a fun and educational activity to promote the protection of these life forms that are endangered by climate change.
Visits are organized for both individuals and groups, who can benefit from discounts starting from 20 members. So, come with whoever you want every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and spend a wonderful day in the company of nature. Book now!
