  • Great experience for both of us adults and our little girl of 18 months which is learning from books the different animals that are not part of our territory so we decided to show "live" spending a Sunday alternative: see his face amazed and spellbound as he watched Elephants, rhinos, Lions, Tigers, zebras, hippos, giraffes, kangaroos, seals, penguins ... it was exciting! I would like to point out and it would be useful to explain to the children that this is a zoo that exists for the protection of endangered species, the parco delle Cornelle collaborates in the creation of protected areas in the area of origin of the animals and do research and donations to save animals in their natural environment (explained extensively in equity signs some species like the Snow Leopard). I didn't know that and impressed me positively appreciating even more our tour that lasted about half 2:00/3:00 Max. I'm terrified birds moved away so anxiously because previous visitors I had described that some birds are free in the Park: they are on the trees rather than away from the human species so even a phobic like me can be quiet at 100% during the entire round. To change the kids there are several nursery spotless and well maintained (remember towel or bath towel to put under your baby for better hygiene); the bathrooms for adults, clean and functional. Shaded picnic areas and equipped with sturdy tables and benches: we had lunch lunches but there are 5 bars, self service restaurant, 1 1, 1 pizzeria and a brewery. Bring your hat to your babies because while the tour is always exposed to the Sun. Should the stroller (after an hour and a half are many children between racing and emotions they fall asleep exhausted) and here and there there are small playgrounds with rides and slides. Go in April was magnificent as the temperature is great (Sunday, there were 21°) and inside the Park to the large presence of various species of trees and varied vegetation breathes fresh air into a temperate/cool microclimate. Important information: do not allow pets to veterinary provisions. You won't get with balls, bicycles, scooters and skates. Beautiful experience! Will be back next year-)

  • I accompanied my small school classes visiting this park. I appreciated the courtesy when booking, clarity in telephone contacts, prices are affordable for schools and at the time of the visit I found cleanliness, open spaces and areas for meals indoors. Nothing to complain. Highly recommend just two notes: map of the Park not quite precise place names Board chiara...io of animals with reference number, and for clarity in the path should be more detailed signs more visible. Thank you

  • Usually I feel sad about animals in a cage. But that's my opinion, I have to say the park is good and by visiting you help feeding these creatures.
  • Visited this park countless times over the last 10 years and its alwyas been a great day out. It also seems to get better every year. Conservation work is admirable. Well done and thank you for some great memories. If there is one small area for improvement it would be the menu offered. Less junk food and more honest Italian dishes would be a massive improvement. In any case 5 stars
  • Carino per una giornata diversa
  • I was there in November 2013 and it was closed 😞 Next time I will come surely!
  • Very good zoo Is complicated to get there from transport public
