Well, I read a lot of negative reviews but my daughter wanted to go. Must say that I really enjoyed it. A sunny afternoon at the end of October with little in the way of crowds meant that we could take our time. The white...More

We went to Rome with our 16 month old, so tried to find activities that he would enjoy. The zoo was rather expensive (16 euros each for adults). There weren't very many animals, and we mostly just saw large groups of people looking through the...More

This was a fantastic day out, very reasonably priced too. Lots of incredible animals and plenty of information dotted around too. Worth doing the train ride (1.50€ per person extra) as it takes you round the whole park. Although talks/feeding times weren’t happening the day...More

Reasonably priced and a large variety of animals. A few guinea pigs there were suffering from a skin condition which was awful to see. Seems that they leave them to inbreed too. There should be more staff on hand as many people were banging on...More

We were lucky with the weather, as it was slightly raining that was bad for tourists and good for animals. Thus, there were almost no one around us and we were able to see all animals without queuing and rushing. Animals didn't seem upset and...More

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

such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
