Not a great experience since it was cold and windy a lot but for those that hold a 7 year old child might be an option Tickets at 14 Euro

Far from the madding crowd. The zoo is located in a very quiet park and is definitely worth a go. They have animals you do not see anywhere else in Europe and it feels great to see that animals are in good hands. I went...More

This was terrible. To be clear, this is not the zoo but a museum next to the zoo. When we bought 2 tickets, the lady behind the counter said: "this is a museum, are you sure?". We knew it was and we really wanted to...More

This is NOT the zoo! Old, expired, poorly maintained and dated. Furthermore, only Italian descriptions. Bad value for money.

Zoos are not always the best place to visit when feeling a bit down. The animals certainly don't seem content. The entire zoo needs an entire makeover and a lot more money invested. The reptile house was good.

Had a great time at the zoo, a bit set back if you are walking. Well worth the visit. Allow plenty of time to get around and enjoy. We stopped for lunch at a little kiosk in the grounds. Worth the money, food was cooked...More

Many of the reviews here confuse this museum with the (also crappy) nearby zoo. This museum is outdated, badly kept and feels like it is itself ancient history! Don't go here.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
