  • Lots of great animals in A beautiful setting. I didn't give it a 5 because it would have been nice to have more animal shows or interaction with the animals. I think this was off season so there may b...  more »
  • Located in green surroundings in the province of Pistoia, truly offers what one expects. Suitable for children who approach the world of animals. It has a good location, you can see animals up close and are present, that really makes the idea of a zoo. The only flaws are: the Park should be restored, some facilities are rundown, you notice the age of the structure. (1970) the ticket is expensive compared to the Zoo. In conclusion, passing a morning with lunch break the cost is quite high. I will return because it appeals to children ... Andrea

  • Two and a half hours that are literally fly in this zoo. The animals are within walking distance and you can appreciate beauty. Unfortunately we couldn't see the parrots that were almost all in and not in cages outside, but otherwise between tigers, elephants, giraffes, turtles, hippo and more we spent a lovely afternoon and took so many pictures.

  • Migliorato molto, avanti !
  • Very fun for kids Admirable passion of the people who work there, some animals have inadequate spaces but are being improved. It was a nice experience. Inadvisable to go by public transport: from Florence for example there are several trains but once in Pistoia x buses arrive are few and schedules that do not interest you. Taxi drivers and bus drivers not suitable for tourist audiences.

  • The zoo and the zoo. It is a nice Park. I'm fond of him. There are the rides the roller coaster ... but to us and why we like ... A nice Park with fabulous and cute animals is to spend a pleasant day at the Pistoia zoo. Beautiful, too bad I was in a hurry ... :*

  • Beautiful and filled with animals! To do a full day with possibility of stopping in picnic areas or in restaurants/bars. Clean, well kept and lively. A must visit for those who love animals and would like to feed a giraffe or an elephant (there are no available feed). Really great Zoological

  • From what was once yesterday is totally another zoo ... Only drawback ... Advantage is that then were caged at the mercy of everyone still remember a little boy with a stick that he goads the Tiger to make it move. Today they control to be seen ... And so a lot of people are very unhappy because he cannot see certain species takes patience are not animals freak show. ... I recommend it to everyone.
