Parco Natura Viva, Bussolengo

#1 of 395 in Outdoors in Veneto
Spend a day learning about wild animals from around the world at Parco Natura Viva, a wildlife park established in 1969 and located in the picturesque hills of Verona province. The sprawling park covers an area of about 40 hectares (99 acres), and shelters nearly 1,500 indigenous and exotic animals, which represent over 250 species of wild creatures. Each year the park attracts nearly half a million visitors of all ages. You can explore two main areas inside this park, both of which are designed to keep the visitors and the animals as safe as possible. The safari area allows visitors to stay inside their vehicles, while the fauna zone is for pedestrians only. The park also includes a dinosaur display area, the first site in the country with life-size models of prehistoric reptiles.

  • We were there during the summer holidays. It's really nice! First part Safari by car, second part on foot. The regret is not being able to see the Cheetah (hiding) and saw the Wallabies only from afar (lurked him, too). A good experience!

  • Near Verona you can visit a nice zoo with animals that you only see on tv or in books. Ideal for anyone.

  • Very nice place. Animals are here as well as in freedom. There are some restaurants, automats for drinks and places to rest. Many trees. Everything s OK.
  • One of the best zoo parks what I visited. Interesting Safari park and normal zoo, placed in very nature enviroinment.
  • We used the discount price (10 euro /ticket after 17:00 for the fauna park only. This is a very attractive way to keep the children busy and amused. There are many different, well exhibited animals from all over the world.
  • Nice zoo. But best to go by car since half the zoo is only accessible by car.
  • Very nice park. Never been that close to so many animals.
