Bioparco, Rome

(2.1/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Bioparco, or the Rome Zoo, was founded in 1908 so the public could view exotic animals and learn about their habitats. Since then, the park has added conservation and environmental education to its goals. The blend of early 20th-century architecture next to the recreated habitats gives the zoo a fantastical appearance that combines human history with natural history. Arrive well before closing time at 5 p.m., because many of the habitats close early to accommodate the animals. Put Bioparco and other Rome attractions into our Rome family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The last time we went for the birthday of a friend of my daughters. A really original thing a chance to celebrate your birthday at Biopark. It's definitely a structure that attracts especially children. Among other things, the conduct of the Party included staying in a sort of small farm, where children were were guided in the preparation of food they have, then, given to animals with whom they were in contact. Imagine the joy of children. In addition, there are picnic areas where you can eat something, given that, generally, it remains in the Zoo for many hours. Hard to take away the children when they have a chance to stay in contact with nature, see gigantic animals feed, feel free. Very nice also the reptile house within dl Biopark.

  • Sometimes for work you are forced to go places sad like this. The saddest thing the elephant with obvious problems of stress and depression continually beating head on a door of iron; sad eyes of large orangutan looking at you from behind a glass filth; Majestic cats confined in bare spaces and ridiculous, more dead than alive, (possibly sedated?); the seals "swimming" in an old wading pool by repeating the same lap for hours; and the wolves and bears and all the other animals are just a tremendous effort. Was changed the name: Zoo/Zoo but the substance is the same unfortunately. The Guide worked himself up to tell us that all these animals are born in captivity and not caught in the wild (God forbid!) The Park in General is old and it shows. A special note is up to the bar staff at the entrance: angry and rude is the Lady of the morning that the two gentlemen in the afternoon.

  • I mean ... no parking worthy of the name, little indication on entry, a hostess under an umbrella that wasn't his job, very long line to buy a ticket, the inside is virtually impossible to find staff, high prices with poor food at points ristoro.......va a great time for kids also because there is no alternative.
