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

Luckily thanks to trip advisor I discovered Rome had a zoo. I have to say it's not well advertised around Rome in the tourist places, and I really don't see why not! It's one of the best city zoos I have been to. It has the most amazing animals. The reptile house was amazing! You felt like you stepped into... More

The directions were much easier to follow on the map than my regular zoo. It was easy to find where we wanted to go. We also liked how there were Popsicle stands throughout the zoo so if we got thirsty we could get a water or a Popsicle. For some of the exhibits the animals actually got really close to... More

After 14 years in Rome, I visited the Bioparco for the first time last week. And was I surprised.. I bought the tickets online - easy peasy. Note - there were not many people so it wouldn't have been a problem to buy tickets at the entrance. The staff who greeted us at the gate were very friendly. Once we... More

Pleasantly surprised by this zoo, as wasn't sure what to expect visiting a zoo abroad. Animals were being fed/eating and environments were clean and tidy. Animals were interested in visitors even in the heat. Great value for money and spent a whole day here. Both big and small animals to see. Didn't go in to the fish as had to... More

Nice to wander round for a couple of hours. Lots of shade to get out the heat of the day. Not the most amazing zoo...not the worst zoo. Loved the brown bears and the grey seals. They also have lions, tigers, elephants and giraffes.

I took the kids to Rome, determined they learn a little about Roman history, and the zoo was break for them... We walked next to the Spanish Steppes which were being redone, and then through the park, which is just lovely. Imagine that battles with barbarians were fought there! We stopped in a playground by the entrance to the park,... 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.
