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.

Awesome place with great selection of animals, mainly from Madagascar and North America. We were impressed with the monkeys - Marta and Zoe. They are absolutely adorable. If you are visiting a family in Rome or a couple like us, you should visit the place. It is located in a park with multiple choice of places and activities to do.
Nice enough zoo. Good widespread diversity. Loved the baby otters! I don't know if the large wild cats felt lazy when I was around or if they don't have enough space, I'm not an expert. But some of the enclosures feel a little small perhaps? (At least to me)
