We visited this this zoo on a cold December day 2014 and had a great time, all the animals seemed in really happy unlike some zoos. In my nine year olds words "everything was great and really cool" and I have to agree from the lions who looked right into our eyes (Bit of a chill down the spine moment)... More

Being our last day in Rome we decided to visit the Villa Borghese park to get away from the crowded tourist attractions. Being there we went at Bioparco which was a very good idea. The zoo is not the biggest in the world but is larger than others I've visited. It is a good place to relax and spend some... More

I always visits ZOO"s ni matter ejere I go and must say I'm terribly dissapointed. The ZOO is small, very old and the cages ancient with few exceptions. Save your money and GO somewhere else. There"s much to see in Rome.

The Bioparco is located in the north of the city centre and is easily accessible on foot, by car or by bus / tram. I spent 2-3 hours there, wandering round looking at the good variety of animals. The name is a little misleading as it is a zoo rather than a park, but none the worse for that. The... More

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
