Bioparco di Roma, 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.

It’s a great place to visit if you’re looking for a quiet tourist-free area. The zoo is huge but nicely kept, all clean and well organized. It was really hot when I went there so I couldn’t see all the animals as they were hiding in shade. The ticket is 16€.
Loved every minute. Offer on in August for €10 each. Absolutely amazing place. Absolutely massive! Drink/ice cream stands everywhere. Only downside is the toilets, they need more attention.
