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

We took our girls here for a break from touring the city. They enjoyed the day, my husband and I could see that there needs to be a lot of work done. Some enclosures we couldn't stay very long as you could see how sad some of the animals are.

The zoo was ok, some of the animals werent around, so we couldn't see them. My little 3 yrs old daughter enjoyed the most the pelicans and big birds that walk between people and they are a bit friendly, the monkeys and the farm animals... because all these interact with people. You feel that the other animals are far, you... More

Very nice, lots of animals to see and shows. If you are going from the city centre you'll get a nice walk through Rome central park. Overall nice, few bits looked a bit dated and a few hills but you know you can't have everything and the animals enclosures looked great.

A clean and organized zoo.. But what you expect? It's a zoo.. Animals are sure not perfectly happy! And it's normal. However.. It's clean and organized. Good space for animals.. But it's not the jungle. A good day to spend with your kids and family. Bathrooms are clean. Panini are not wow.. So get a snack with you but don't... More

I spent a very enjoyable afternoon here with my other half. We were extremely impressed by Bioparco. It is well worth the 15 euros entrance fee. The park is huge and contains everything from a giant avery full of birds to a very well stocked reptile house. Also miniature monkeys which I have never seen before. All the animals looked... More

We had some time to spare in Rome and decided the zoo was pretty harmless. God were we wrong. Firstly we saw an elephant facing the door into his inside enclosure rocking back and forth. At that point we decided that this was a horrible idea. We then came across a small hippo still in the water in a tiny... More

It was a nice visit during a very hot Sunday afternoon. We were over there a couple of years ago and it was very nice till now; of course it's a zoo and most animals are not supposed to stay there. It depends on own personal expectations if it likes or not.

As my daughter and I entered this establishment one of the first things we came across was the elephant enclosure, and there was a lone elephant facing a building, rocking and bumping its head against the door. We stood for a couple of minutes and the elephant did nothing but rock backwards and forwards, backwards and forwards, bump, bump, bump.... More
