When they get bored by sculptures and paintings and stones, bring the kids to the zoo! Nice place with some small playgrounds.

I dont like zoos much. I end up feeling sorry for every animals except for the spiders, but i had promised my son that after seeing all of Rome I'd do something he would like. We were staying near the bioparc, so we stopped on our way ....we went on a sunday, 11ish and there were quite a few families... More

We happened to come across the zoo at the rear of the Ville Borghese - admission was 16 Euro each, but no queue so just walked straight in. Lots of animals and all enclosures were acceptable. No gift shop so you can't get any souvenirs but plenty of picnic areas and children's play areas if you take some lunch, the... More

Top notch zoo where you will be amazed by all wild animals they have, enjoy a walk on the wild side and don't forget to visit the Terrarium, well worth it :)

We visited this zoo on Friday morning and it wasn't good time because the staff were just cleaning the cotes so many animals were hidden. Also the entrance ticket is nothing cheap. But it is very nice and huge zoo.

We spent an enjoyable afternoon looking around here. It is reasonable priced and has a good variety of animals. Some of the enclosures could do with updating, and the childrens zoo area is not suitable for some of the larger animal there like a cow, but on the whole it is well presented. Limited places to buy food, so might... More

After a day of ancient sites we wanted to take the kids somewhere they could run and relax. The Bioparco is located in the Villa Borghese gardens. It's a big expanse with some truly beautiful animals. I'm always concerned that zoos are offering enough space. This definitely seemed to. The only instance where the enclosures looked small was the alien... 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.
