The zoo is clean with fun signs and interacion for the children. The animals are clearly well taken care of, and my young, animal-loving 7 year-old son loved it. Bravo!

We took a trip to the zoo on our first day as we like visiting zoos in every location we visit. A few of the enclosures looked smaller than we felt comfortable seeing and due to the rain the ground looked muddy and bare, However,...More

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
