The Bioparco is a large zoo with lots of species. Great fun for every one and a good idea for a fun day outside. The animals have a lot of space and a good environment whit shadow.

Take at least two or three hours to go through the whole zoo. The restaurant in the zoo,however,doesn't really offer much,so I'd recommend stopping for food somewhere... More

My girlfriend and I visited Bioparco di Roma on the final day of our holiday last week. With a flight to catch in the afternoon we arrived at the park at 10:30 and left at around 12:30 - with more time, we could have easily spent another few hours at the park. We paid €16 per person which is around... More

The enclosures are far too small for the bigger animals and did not appear to be cleaned often. Typically sociable animals were kept alone and seemed very distressed. Just because people can walk around in a relatively short period of time and see loads of animals doesn't make it a good zoo.

Its a nice decent sized quiet zoo. We enjoyed three hours there, after reading the other positive reviews on this website. Entry is only 16 euros for an adult, the staff are happy and helpful, and the animals seem cheerful enough. Its a lot quieter than the other main attractions in Rome, and I think children would really enjoy it.

We had visited all the sights in a single day in Rome and were looking for something different to do on our second day. The reviews here didn't convince us entirely but we had nothing to lose and also the neighbouring park was nice to walk through with it being summer. First of all its very reasonably priced. We paid... More

We visited whilst on holiday here. Before coming to Rome I broke my foot and we decided that the day before we went home I would relax and go to the zoo in the wheelchair. To our please tell surprise I got in for free and so did my fiancé. I even was able to enter the extra aquarium part... More

If you are in Rome with young kids then it's a must to pass by. Our kids had enough from running around Rome sight seeing so it was the perfect place to take them. We were afraid from the smell but it was really acceptable. The variety of animals is amazing , The prices for the tickets were as follow... More

This is not like the big city zoos we have in the uk. It's a small but friendly zoo. You can see all the big animals like bears and Tigers to the small animals like rabbits. Lodes of places to sit down and watch the animals. Also lodes of places to grab a bite to eat or drink. Map is... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
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.
