When I was in Italy, I visited the Bioparco, Rome’s zoo. Why visit the zoo when there are so many great things to do in Rome? Well, I like zoos.

The Bioparco is located in the Villa Borghese, a large park area in Rome. In the Villa Borghese, it is in Piazzale del Giardino Zoologico. The park is pretty neat. I found one of the streets really interesting.

Viale Fiorello La Guardia; Sindaco de New York

Fiorello La Guardia was the mayor of New York City during the Depression.

Here are photos of some of the animals I saw in the Rome Zoo:


Oink oink!


This falcon was in the animal rehabilitation area. The photo was taken through a smal slot in a wooden fence.

cow or water buffalo

I forget if this is a cow or a water buffalo.



Don’t forget to brush your teeth.



Overall, I had a good experience at the zoo. It wasn’t in the best shape; some signs were missing identification cards. I don’t mean to say that they were missing English identification cards; they were just missing identification cards. The animal quarters were not as good as most zoos I have seen in the United States. However, I may just be projecting human standards to animals–if the animals are happy, I don’t need to be.

There were no T-shirts for sale in the zoo; Italians tend not to wear T-shirts at all. Otherwise, I would have bought a T-shirt for my brother.
