The Bioparco was recommended by my brother-in-law when visiting Rome with our baby. First we made the walk from the Piazza di Popollo through the Villa Borghese. Which is very very very nice. A great park in Rome. It's a oasis of silence and it's been kept very clean. We finally got to the Bioparco entrance and first thing we... More

Our visit was spur of the moment after deciding to take the 3 tram from pyramide. This trip takes you past many of the sights including circus maximus,colosseum, the oldest church in rome and many more. It drops you off right outside the entrance. We spent over 4 hours walking around. Yes, some exhibits were being updated, but compared to... More

This is a great local zoo with some magical animals some areas are closed off either due to loss of animals or need to repair areas. If you love animals however I still strongly recommend as a way to pass a couple of hours.

If I could give this zoo no stars I would. All the animals should be removed and taken to a place where they are stimulated and have a big enough enclosure. Their days must be awful... We stayed for about 1/2 hr before we headed for the exit. Don't get me started on the 'alien fish' exhibit which is literally... More

This zoo was difficult to get to - very long unpleasant ride on a no.19 bus - couldn't find the tram that goes (No. 3). Entrance fee was e14, but you have to get a ticket form a staff member standing inconspicuously in the crowd and wait until your number is called - small wait on a Sunday at 1400... More

Many displays deserted or under reconstruction, apathetic animals on display, no interactive content, etc. A great place like Rome deserves better.

I have visited many zoo's during my travels and I must say I have seen better, but a good day out for children of you have them! There were elephants and lions, they are building a tiger area now which should be good, but everything is behind a window which in the sun can sometimes be a problem to take... More

Spent late morning afternoon at the Zoo. Totally enjoyed myself. So much to see a total pleasant walk around the zoo. The monkey's was so funny and was surprised of how up close you could was to the animals. Defo recommend making a visit there.

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.
