The Parc Zoologique de Paris (Metro Porte Dorée) has reopened after years of reordering. It is a beautiful zoo. The full adult cost is €22 and well worth it. It is laid out in zones and is easy to get round.

I would expect Paris, being the city it is, to have a much better zoo especially as the zoo has been renovated. The scenery is good and it has potentail plus a concept with the five different animal zones from five different corners of the world, but exhibits cannot be easily spotted, enclosures although big and spacious, contain too many...

In general, we like to visit ZOOs. However, this one was the most expensive and with the least interesting stuff inside. Obscure huge artifical rock raised our expectations however there was nothing, so truly weird architecture. You might spend your money much better.

After having been closed for a couple of years, the 2nd eldest zoo in the world has not risen like phoenix to be fabulous. All the enclosures are nice, but old-fashioned. The visitor sees clearly the borders, that keep the animals inside their premisses. Not all enclosures are really designed for the well-being of their inhabitants. They seem to be... More

I've been to a lot of zoos and I can't say this one was overly exciting, but the plan of the zoo was very open and quiet and all the animals seemed well cared for and content. There were some unusual animals I hadn't seen like the vicuña and guanaco (old style llamas and alpacas) and a cougar which was... More

I went there with my son, 9 years old. He enjoyed very much this "adventure". We spent just 2 hours but I think that was enough. It wasn't a very big zoological parc but he accommodates different species from almost all continents.

It's definitely a bit expensive for what you get. It's a good idea to bring food and have a picnic. Plan to stay the whole day and get your money's worth. There aren't a lot of animals to see but the giraffes, the penguins and the one manatee were the highlights.I chose by far the Jardin des Plantes which however... More

This is a fun zoo. We went on a mild day (75F degrees). There were lots of animals out and they were fairly active -- even the bats!! We went to Par Zoologique de Paris, during our weeklong trip to Paris, in which we visit lots of museums. The zoo was a welcome change of pace. It is perfectly sized... More

Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
