A bit disappointing considering the zoo was closed for 4 years for upgrade. Many animals are alone, and we're in need of companions. It is easy to get around and not too hilly. Several places to stop for snacks, and plentiful toilets! A shame that the elephants are no longer there, and the giraffes are well out of reach of... More

I haven't travelled the world and been to many zoos, however I have been to most capital city zoo's in Australia ans the Singapore Zoo. This zoo does not compare in anyway to any of them. It is very small with many enclosures either empty or with 1 or 2 animals. And if they don't feel like strutting then be... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was relunctant to go to the Zoo but decided to bite the bullet and try. We went there yesterday. The tickets are expensive but it is worth it. The zoo is nicely designed, enclosures are big, there is a lot of animals and lots of baby animals. My kids age 6 and 10... More

We visited Paris zoo in July 2015 Although rather expensive (almost EUR 100 family of 5) it was weel worrh oit time and money. The park is one of the most modern we have to, with big cages, often with several species.

The zoo has been recently renovated, territory is all new and crisp. Located in green quiet area next to a big forest-park it's a nice place for a long walk. Most animals are in open-air spacious aviaries, no cages and lack of space. There is a pond with flamingo, pelicans and other species which is in a glass pavilion, so... More

Very easy to reach by bus or metro. No parking of its own but they have arrangements with nearby public car parks. You would need to visit the zoo's website for details. As with everything in Paris at the moment, expect baggage checks as you enter, and a little mild chaos in what they loosely refer to as 'queueing', but... More

The zoo is enormous and even if it is quite difficult to see some of the animals (especially for the little ones) just the walk around the grounds is very nice. There are beautiful flowers and trees everywhere and the animals living spaces are very big which is a very positive thing for them. Our two children who are 4... More

Having read other reviews, I was not sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed my visit. 22 euros is not cheap, but we spent 3 hours there walking around at a leisurely pace and enjoying the animals. I take the point about a lack of information in English but should we expect this everywhere we go? The signage was written... More

I probably was expecting too much of this completely renovated zoo. The zoo is large but very few animals, their living spaces are huge, which is great for the welfare of the species kept there, yet, because of the size of the spaces, you don't see the animals, half are hidden somewhere. The walk is pleasant, but it would be... 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.
