Rome’s century-old zoological garden has recently undergone a major overhaul and re-branding, replacing many of the old bars and cages with large open spaces where animals can move more freely, and it now plays an active role in environmental education and the conservation of endangered species. It is home to over 1,000 animals belonging to 200 species and has been refashioned with young visitors in mind, with explanations for children and viewing windows at child level. There is also a special programme of activities for children and it is possible to organise “nature-based” birthday parties all year round.

    We thought the grounds were beautiful, the animals healthy and well cared for with lots of space and lots of amenities including toilets, cafes, drinking water fountains and helpful friendly staff. (Gary)
