When in Rome you don't need to go to the zoo, unless it is very hot and you have a child who has had enough of history. We visited it and our expectation were quite low as we had read some of the reviews before going. Our 7 year old loved seeing the elephants, giraffes and tigers and on the... More

Set in the amazing Borghese Gardens the Bioparco is an above average Zoo, with a theme of biodiversity and preserving species. Also an education centre. We took our grand daughter who liked the diversion after old ruins and loved the peacocks that wander everywhere.

An average zoo to be honest. We've been to all kinds of zoos, Bristol, Chester, Berlin and Budapest. This one was the worst by a margain. Nothing really there that gave it the wow factor. The bus stops outside the front door which is nice but the map was confusing and probably designed by a child.

The last bus stop (small bus) out of Rome gets you to this zoo. The fountains in this area (Poppolo) are amazing. The area was everything Rome should be. We walked through Campo Marzio and discovered the zoo. No English speaking there but the animals seemed to understand. The Chimpanzee will go to window to window to meet and greet.... More

Visited this zoo on Friday 4 July 2014, entrance fee was 15 euros with 3 euros extra for the optional aquarium attraction. The range of animals was pretty standard for a zoo and the enclosures varied from very basic to quite good compared to zoo's in the UK. The amount of animals on show was I would say far less... More

We took our girls here for a break from touring the city. They enjoyed the day, my husband and I could see that there needs to be a lot of work done. Some enclosures we couldn't stay very long as you could see how sad some of the animals are.

The zoo was ok, some of the animals werent around, so we couldn't see them. My little 3 yrs old daughter enjoyed the most the pelicans and big birds that walk between people and they are a bit friendly, the monkeys and the farm animals... because all these interact with people. You feel that the other animals are far, you... More

Very nice, lots of animals to see and shows. If you are going from the city centre you'll get a nice walk through Rome central park. Overall nice, few bits looked a bit dated and a few hills but you know you can't have everything and the animals enclosures looked great.
