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.

I often visit Rome and decided on this trip to take a trip to the zoo. Wow! what a wonderful place!!! Very modern, well kept, clean and reasonably priced. If ever in Rome..... visit the zoo!

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 This museum is outdated, badly kept and feels like it is itself ancient history!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.

We thought it might be worth taking the kids during our visit to rome but it was very expensive and had a couple of tigers and an elephant. Something that at least should be free. Don't go there it's a waste of time too.

Very good zoological museum. The animal exhibits are more interesting than the history museums. Very suitable for children. Free for EU citizens under 18 years old.

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
