This is not the San Diego Zoo or Whipsnade or similar, it is a central city zoo that has clearly gone through significant updating in recent years and continues to improve. There is much work going on to improve the animal enclosures. Lots of space for the kids to run around and a nice assortment of animals, which makes it... More

Rome Biopark is a small zoo. It took about 2 hours walking round and seeing all the animals. It's nice, clean and good fun. My daughter enjoyed getting out the city and roaming the zoo; great family time out! The park surrounding the zoo is also great.

We visited the Bioparco on the last day of our stay in Rome just to relax a bit from the hustle of the main tourist areas. It looked to us a little small, compared to other Zoos we had visited, but we spent a long and nice time there and my son loved it. The places where the animals live... More

We spent 5 hours in what appeared to be a relatively small zoo park. The zoo is well appointed in the corner of the Borghese Park. Entrance price is reasonable. What was particularly striking was the condition of the animals.....every exhibit was clean and well kept. There is a good range from the animal kingdom on show. We visited on... More

We wanted to get away from the centre of Rome, so we came out here. From the metro station there is a lovely walk up through a park to get to the zoo. The price was discounted thanks to our Roma Card, and came to 13 euro each. Unfortunately, about half an hour into our visit it started raining, and... More

Wanting to get out of the panic of the city we decided to visit the Bio Park (Zoo to me and you). Whilst it made a pleasant change from the normal Rome tourist attractions, it all seemed a little low-key. Perhaps being a mid-week and October made it too quiet!?! Many of the compounds seemed to have just one animal.... More

We enjoyed our adventure a the Rome Zoo. Very few, if any tourists (except for us), were seen at the zoo when we went. We like to spend a little time away from the tourist areas, mingling with the locals. That is exactly what we got! While the park was fairly small, and the variety of the animals was not... More

Right in the heart of Rome (sort of like Central Park), the old zoo has been updated, with ambient spaces for the animals (no cages except for the aviaries) separated from people by moats. A great stroll and some animals one doesn't find in U.S. zoos--mountain goats, and some types of antelope, for instance. Rome has two Asian elephants, some... More
