We visit the Bioparco on our last day as we'd explored everywhere else! Walked through Villa Borghese to get there which is beautiful (although the Bioparco signposts make you walk the long way when you can just cut across the dog park!) Zoo itself is fine, lots of animals and things to look at. Felt some of the enclosures were... More

If you have children its a very good place to have a family time there is a train inside the zoo that can take you to all the animals without a problem and while you sitting, if you are energized and want to walk by foot the zoo is pretty huge so come with a sports wear. In fabuary (this... More

The park is ok but some of the animals are in quite small tanks/ areas. There were BIG animals in little spaces, animals that should be out running around have just enough room to pace. The turtle doesn't have anywhere to swim, a little puddle in his enclosure. Some of the Macaque don't look well - bald all over and... More

Excellent choice for January 1st as almost everything else is closed in Rome on that specific day.No matter if it rains or if the sun shines get the chance to visit the Bioparco.Located close to the villa Borghese, it costs 16 euro but it is not that expensive after all.Many coffee and food spots all over the zoo and a...

The zoo is great, it has a decent variety of animals and it's in villa borghese. I recommend it especially for families

Much needed break from buildings, with space for our seven year old to run and play. Some animals really well cared for, some looked I'll (e.g. Guinea pigs). Some very interesting animals. If you have children I would definitely recommend it.

An animal lover and greenie I don't normally like seeing animals in captivity however the website suggested great things in terms of the enclosures and keeping the animals entertained in as natural environments as possible. Granted we went on a very cold day (only 8 degrees) but the animals whilst appearing healthy/ well fed seemed quite lethargic and sad especially... More

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

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.
