The zoo is tucked away at the back of the Villa Borghese, a beautiful park, making the walk to the zoo rather pleasant. The zoo has a wide range of animals and notwithstanding of the heat and therefore a lack of animal activity (the zoo cannot help the temperatures in Rome in summer) it is still well worth the visit....

The zoo is located in the beautiful park of Villa Borghese. They have various kinds of animals and you can quietly walk around for a few hours and watch the animals. The animals are not always in a very open view, sometimes only through windows or a small piece of fence. All descriptions of the animals are in English and... More

We spent half a day under the huge trees and shadowed passages visiting the barn owls, lynx, birds and many other animals. The zoo is spacious and has a location with a playground with a restaurant and a cafe. The zoo is within a huge park that borders the city center. This park also includes the Villa Borghese and several... More

Rome zoo is probably the worst I've ever visited. It is absolutely not stroller friendly. Notwithstanding that the animal are battling due to heat this time time of year the enclosures are just sad. It's really a disgrace that a zoo in Europe can be so poor. Even Johannesburg has a better zoo with decent space for the animals. The... More

After reading alot of negative reviews we very nearly didn't go to the zoo but it's hard to find truly child friendly activities in Rome so we decided to give it a go anyway and i'm really glad we did. Our daughter is 1 meter and so I paid for a ticket (under 1m is free) and the man on... More

I have seen better. Large area with animals who were sleeping all the time. Like they were sedated. Reptile area was great! Overall, it is nice, beautiful area, but not amazed with animals. You should see zoo in Belgrade and you would know what I mean.

We went to this zoo as a last minute decision and we were glad we did. It's located at the back of the park and very easy to find and has a lovely entrance, we walked but the car park looks very small so if driving I'd double check before. The entrance price is very cheap only €30 for the... More

On our last day in Rome, we decided to give the kids a break from all the walking and adult tours. We went to Explora kids museum and the Bioparco di Roma Zoo. We took a cab going there, bought the tickets from entrance directly and there's no queue. It was spring when we visited so walking with kids is... More

As this was our 3rd visit to Roe we decided to visit the outskirts not the tourist traps, we discovered the zoo whilst walking around the Borghese gardens. we spent about 3 hours here, would be a great day out for the kids. The refreshments were very reasonably priced.

good place to see, with quite good number of animals, old in style, but needs more investment in the appearance & animals, but globally nice place to see with kids

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.
