At 16€ per adult, it was a little pricey compared to free zoos in the USA. That said, it was a cute, clean, and easy-to-navigate zoo. Some areas were undergoing renovation as they continue to improve. Midday on a Tuesday, there was almost no crowds—possibly due to the hot Roman summer. Some of the animals appeared in distress, possibly due to the heat, smaller enclosures, loneliness, or a byproduct of captivity. The Asian elephant comes to mind in particular. The primates were particularly amusing and rather cheeky. See the photo for one example who happily posed for a picture. Overall, a decent zoo.

Nice zoo but it needs some updates. It tries to look like a bioparc but there's still work to do. As a tip, try to get there at 9 o'clock in the morning. You'll have peace and quiet and you can enjoy the zoo at your own pace. You'll probably have to spend more time at the zoo to see all the activities done with the animals.

Very good location to see a good variety of animals from several parts of the world. Excellent for kids and families. Would have loved to see African as opposed to Asian lions though

An enjoyable day, the zoo had many great animals and enclosures with signs in English and Italian! All but one food stall was closed. Be warned, seagulls will attack you for your food, be careful!!!

Fun and informative. It's very important to try to attend feeding times since the staff not only help gather the animals for viewing but also explain a lot about the species as well as the specific animal traits present amongst the ones in the enclosure.
