It was the middle of October and the sun was shining. Actually it was quite hot, especially after Finland. The line at the entrance was very long - 137 before us, but we have waited for only about 15-20 minutes. With the tickets we've got the map, but I should tell that Bioparco had enough pointers and arrows to walk... More

I loved the exhibitions they had. The animals weren't locked up in cages, but more like places in open spaces where you could see them without endangering yourself. It also featured informative English blurbs about each animals and how close it is to extinction. Lovely place to walk around, you get a great workout walking up and down the hills... More

The zoo is located in a huge park, beautiful walking trails. The zoo itself was expensive 90 Euros for 6 adults, eek! We didn't see any food carts or restaurants that we could just grab a bite to eat. The water fountains are all over the zoo which was great. Animals look like they are well cared for, feed and...

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.
