One lonely tiger, one sad lion, two bored elephants, a few monkeys and not much more. All the animals looked sad and lonely. Definitely not worth the 15 Euro entrance cost. Worst zoo I've been to.

We have two young children and the zoo was a must for our recent trip. Kids under 1 meter enter for free so for two adults it was 30 euro which I find very reasonable for an attraction like this. There are a lot of animals here including lions, crocodiles, tigers, frogs, snakes, giraffes, birds etc. We were there for... More

I was shocked to see the terrible condition the animals are living in that zoo. They should close it! It is not worth at all it is even expensive. I come from a 3 rd world country and I already think our main zoo in Mexico City is not really proper for the animals , but this Bioparco in Rome... More

We were staying just outside the walls of this Zoo and gave into my daughter who is an animal lover that we would visit the Zoo before we went home, our last morning we walked around to the Zoo entrance paid €45 for the 3 of us and entered what can I say? The Zoo looked tired and dirty, not... More

Why go to the Zoo in Rome? Call it a palate cleanser from all the sights, a break from the city, a place that will make you smile for two hours straight. It's a small zoo with very active animals, so even at midday in the hot summer, the monkeys will be monkeying around. Each of the past two visits... More

Exhibits overall are poor and lacking enrichment. Monkeys showed hair loss from stress, multiple species were pacing and swaying due to lack of stimulation. This place is literally prison for the animals. Disgraceful. If you genuinely give a crap about animals, don't bother, save your money and don't take your children here as it doesn't teach them anything good about... More

Visited here in July finding it on the off chance whilst walking through the park. €15 each to enter the zoo. There was plenty different animals but some of the cages were very small and had little shade from the intense Italian heat. The monkeys had water sprayed on them to keep them cool but had about 50 in a... More

We happily spent several hours in the zoo and would have spent longer if it had been a cooler day. Well laid out and plenty of places to grab a drink.

Our granddaughter was bored with the ruins so we took her here. It is old but lots of exciting species that kept her and us interested for half a day. Lots of shade from the sun. Not brilliant but pleased we went. The alien fishes was an extra €3 each and not worth the extra charge.

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
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.
