We went to the zoo! We loved it! Only disappointing thing was no penguins and the gift shop is not great! The zoo has brown bears, lions, tigers, and the normal zoo animals! There are a few places to eat and lots of water fountains to fill up bottles. Was a good way to chill out and enjoy the sunshine... More

As others have previously said this was not the best zoo I have visited. Some of the animals did look bored and lethargic but to be fair it was 32 degrees and I felt lethargic too. It seemed you can get quite close to some of the animals but not too close as to invade their space and that was... More

Ok so let's start off with the low point and move upwards from there. This is not the best zoo I have been to. There are many other zoo's that I have had the pleasure of visiting, but that is fine, I did not expect the Bioparco to be better than... Chicago or Toronto. It is generally a good zoo,... More

As everyone can imagine Rome has much more to see and fall in love with. Still visiting the 'Bioparco' was a very joyful experience. Great fun especially the Japanese macaque.

When in Rome you don't need to go to the zoo, unless it is very hot and you have a child who has had enough of history. We visited it and our expectation were quite low as we had read some of the reviews before going. Our 7 year old loved seeing the elephants, giraffes and tigers and on the... More

Set in the amazing Borghese Gardens the Bioparco is an above average Zoo, with a theme of biodiversity and preserving species. Also an education centre. We took our grand daughter who liked the diversion after old ruins and loved the peacocks that wander everywhere.

An average zoo to be honest. We've been to all kinds of zoos, Bristol, Chester, Berlin and Budapest. This one was the worst by a margain. Nothing really there that gave it the wow factor. The bus stops outside the front door which is nice but the map was confusing and probably designed by a child.

The last bus stop (small bus) out of Rome gets you to this zoo. The fountains in this area (Poppolo) are amazing. The area was everything Rome should be. We walked through Campo Marzio and discovered the zoo. No English speaking there but the animals seemed to understand. The Chimpanzee will go to window to window to meet and greet.... More

Visited this zoo on Friday 4 July 2014, entrance fee was 15 euros with 3 euros extra for the optional aquarium attraction. The range of animals was pretty standard for a zoo and the enclosures varied from very basic to quite good compared to zoo's in the UK. The amount of animals on show was I would say far less... More
