This is a zoo not a museum as Americans would describe. Take bus 117 and get off at the last stop and than walk up the hill - you will see amazing fountains and walk through a park including a beautiful palace property from the early 1800's. Only place in town that we found that is non smoking wish that... More

We thought it might be worth taking the kids during our visit to rome but it was very expensive and had a couple of tigers and an elephant. Something that at least should be free. Don't go there it's a waste of time too.

Very good zoological museum. The animal exhibits are more interesting than the history museums. Very suitable for children. Free for EU citizens under 18 years old.

Visiting the zoo was like living in Rome. While there, we didn't see any tourists. We only saw Italians with their families. It was fun walking around without crowds and just enjoying the day. The reptile museum is the highlight. It is a MUST see. I did feel sorry for the elephant, who looked very sad, but otherwise the animals... More

Located in a serene environment this Museum is located among a peaceful neighbourhood. It has a number of rooms with exhibits of different zoological specimens from across centuries...making it a memorable place to visit especially for the young. Supported by an excellent staff which takes pains and during our visit, in which we unfortunately got delayed owing to a walk... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
