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.

We bravely caught the tram here from our hotel, it was surprisingly easy and it stopped right outside of the Zoo. This Zoo is okay but not the best we have seen. I still think it is worth a visit though if you have young children - We probably won't visit this zoo again. The 'Alien Fish' exhibit was good,... More

Good Zoo, there are a wide variety of animals; however, seems it is not very well maintained since you can clearly see lack of staff. Nice visit overall, lots of improvement needed

I would highly recommend a trip to the bourghese parc and the bioparc if travelling with kids to Rome. It is a great way to spend the day out of the hustle and bustle of the city. If you want to rent a bike, rent it where you are planning to leave, they have to be returned in the same... More

The walk through the gardens is absolutely lovely. I wouldn't bother going to the zoo again though. They have heard animals by themselves which I think is very unfair. Elephants were seperated and had very little room to move. Ok if you want a quiet trip and the animals to yourself but if you are into animal welfare then I... More

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

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.
