“Outdated, however kids still had fun ”

La Citta della Domenica
Ranked #51 of 177 things to do in Perugia
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 August 2017 via mobile

Everyone going there should not have high expectations. It was developed in the 1960s, and - it seems - not updated since a long time.
In terms of accessibility with stroller, only the main path is an easy ride.
The map, menus, information panels,... are all only in Italian.
However, the kids (2 and 4 years) had a nice time. And all the staff was very friendly!

I am a pretty positive person so even when we were told that the train through the park wasn't open till 2pm (we arrived for when the park opened) and the reptiles were closed till 2.30 (presumably having a lie in), I still was quite looking forward to exploring the zoo, medieval castle and various other 'areas' with my 3 year old.
I shouldn't have.

The attractions, if you can call them that, are pretty decrepit (I'm a fan of old school stuff, this is not what they are), we actually didn't come across a working ride, the zoo definitely had animals, but they certainly didn't look well after and you ended up feeling sorry for them.
We searched for the medieval castle and came across something which definitely wasn't a castle, so either completely missed it or it just wasn't what it said it was.

On the positive, we got some good exercise.

Not worth a visit.

Unbelievable that they charged us an enormous sum to get in.
The road leading up the hill to the place is unfinished and there are no signposts. When we arrived we couldn't work out how to get in. We asked a worker and he directed us to the back gate for tradesmen! We found our way in eventually without paying but we saw the entrance hall and went for a coffee and a ticket.
The cappuccino was the only good thing there.
A train took us round and we had a chance to see what were supposed to be the attractions. We then walked around.
Everything was either closed or in desperate need of repair. Some of the seats, gates, fences etc were rotten, sharp and dangerous.
The animals were in terrible enclosures. A boar looked suicidal inside a small area covered in rocks and a tiny pool with hardly any water.
You pay extra for the car track which is next to the boating area which was green and slimey.
This was an utter disgrace.
We stopped at one of the cafe areas and the food was truly appalling.
Don't waste your time. If it hadn't been so expensive we would have treated it as a joke but the border level cruelty of the animal areas and the disgusting state of the "attractions" is awful.

It was a wonderful day with the kids during the week. There had been not many people around which increased the magic feeling in this park. You feel the nostalgia from the 60's where this park has been created, which also reminded me a lot to my grandparents. This is not the park for people looking for action like in Lego Land or Gardaland, this park is for people enjoying walks in nature and travelling back in time, when fairy tales did not have to compete against Harry Potter or Star Wars to catch a child's attention. Great park for families looking for some Cowboys and Indians experience, enjoying to see diverse animals and to climb on buildings not build on plastic, but build to last the next 100
years.

We visited this park during our holiday in Perugia, we had 5 kids with us (from 3 to 13) and all of them loved it. The place is rustic and screams for some basic maintenance but the area itself is very nice! The views of Perugia from this park are fantastic!

All the kids loved the go-karts but you have to pay an extra € 1.50 for the ride (2 laps). There is a small and easy maze which was a lot of fun for the children. The train ride seems to run only once or twice a day.

The restaurant/cafe at the entrance offers burgers, hot dogs, pizza and small dishes. The quality of the food is just like in you average gas station. The other restaurants and the bar were closed.

This is a place to visit with a bunch of kids where they will definitely have a lot fun!
