Rome Attractions :: Rome Zoo, the Bioparco

Renamed recently as Bipraco, Rome Zoo is a habitat of animals and birds. Rome 's Zoo is located in the Villa Borghese park area, on Viale del Giardino Zoologico. In keeping with the 'Bioparco' name, each creature has a sign (in Italian and English) describing not just its name and characteristics, but the area populated by the species, now and in the past - a sad reminder of the dangers of extinction, and the preservation role of zoos like the Bioparco.

Rome Zoo provides an alternative activity for tourists, and entertainment for children who may be bored of static sights. There are lots of shady spots to sit and rest, complete with drinking water fountains and picnic benches. There's a small cafe by the zoo entrance, and up on the rooftop there is an expensive restaurant) with a fine view over the giraffes. The zoo is handily labeled with signposts suggesting the best route around the paths.
