Beautiful walk through the center of Rome

We walked through the park to the Spanish Steps. Like all of Rome, it has beautiful sculpture and architecture.

The Food at the entrance is crap og service is even worse. They only take cash. The animals where stressed or bored, had little Space and it was quite dirty. I would not recommend the toilets, dirty, no paper and smelly. Bring antibac. A lot.

... as they're spot on (although it's a pity about the one that says "Don't go here if your English" [sic] - oh dear...! Anyway, I agree about the conditions for the animals. Most of them looked depressed and would have probably opted for a visit to Dignitas, given half the chance. Then there are the issues for us humans... More

The location of the zoo is just perfect. Located in the beautiful park of Villa Borghese, it is great to spend three hours of your time in it. I really liked the idea of how close you can be to the animals.

One lonely tiger, one sad lion, two bored elephants, a few monkeys and not much more. All the animals looked sad and lonely. Definitely not worth the 15 Euro entrance cost. Worst zoo I've been to.

We have two young children and the zoo was a must for our recent trip. Kids under 1 meter enter for free so for two adults it was 30 euro which I find very reasonable for an attraction like this. There are a lot of animals here including lions, crocodiles, tigers, frogs, snakes, giraffes, birds etc. We were there for... More

I was shocked to see the terrible condition the animals are living in that zoo. They should close it! It is not worth at all it is even expensive. I come from a 3 rd world country and I already think our main zoo in Mexico City is not really proper for the animals , but this Bioparco in Rome... More

I visited this Zoo with my 7 & 15 years old boys. They were excited and enjoyed seeing every single animal There are a lot of animals. I used the map we received when we paid for the ticket to see the animals from 1 to finish Alien fish exposition - we paid separately. It's a small aquarium with a... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
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.
