  • I wasn't a fan of zoos but I must say its transformation into bio Park has made it much more beautiful and welcoming for both visitors and animals. The only drawback the lack of receptivity feed as both the restaurant and bar are almost always full. The Council is to bring something to the lot or enter and leave the park for lunch.

  • We visited this zoo in December with two girls aged 5 and 7 years. We didn't have no discount and spent well 50 euros to enter. The path is everything and not reported. We loved the signs above the animal name, the provenance, the gesrazione and position in the food chain. the space devoted to almost every animal we thought was adequate but that the poor Jaguar which seemed cramped and without water (is a skilled swimmer) and that the giraffes, elephants and hippopotamuses (and I suspect they were expanding). The penguins is enlarging. Some parrots are left proper free without cages and really enjoyed. The ride was closed because the person in charge by lemurs was absent on the day of our visit (which would have justified a reduction on ticket price). There are vending of food and farm area close to giraffes and with 20 cents children can feed the animals from their hands. There was no sight and even that would have justified a reduction on the ticket price. All in all the Park is worth a visit in itself but to attract tourists in winter should be lowered prices and offered shows and maybe rides ... we are used to go in Pombia where Miss with a family (in winter, out of Gruoupon) there are shows and many many train rides animals ... I understand that animals are and should be treated even in winter but we would not stay there again under these conditions ... we must rework the marketing of the Park.

  • The Park is super cute, well maintained and well organized. It lacks some animal species but overall valid. The cost of 15 euros per person is deserved. Beautiful animals inside. In my view held just fine. Deserves a larger space than the crocodile, probably sacrificed. Inside the Park you will find a good restaurant with local dishes. Highly recommended!

  • 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.
