  • Little zoo with a large floor of animal species just outside the city on the edge of the pistoiese mountains.

  • Lovely family day, the trail is suitable for children. Animals you can see almost all (not seen the bear and wolves). Possible interaction with some of the animals (farm animal, but even the giraffe). The only drawback the price becomes a little thinking with large families.

  • After about 30 years back at the Pistoia zoo with family instead of classmates. The zoo has changed a lot and really have the feeling of immersion in nature. There are no cages but many areas where animals have more space and seem at ease. I was afraid to be disappointed but in reality I was fascinated by this space useful and fun. There are many RV Parks where you can sit and eat a sandwich brought from home, with chairs and tables in the shade. And then so many animals. Only giraffes, elephants and hippos have remained in the old town plant with the cages but they too are going to move house because the new zone for elephants (very large) is already built and waiting for the inauguration. To turn it around just a half day and there is also a very useful games to loosen the tiredness of small solid parquet. Personally I recommend heartily.

  • 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.
