For a wonderful day with the kids when in Rome, do go to zoo, it is excellent. There are multiple well created areas at the zoo, with many interesting and active animals.
And the favourite of our kids? The guinea pigs (we have a few back home), bunnies etc at the “petting zoo”/children’s area (could not really pet, but still, domesticated animals), by far.
But we did also enjoy all the giant turtles, crocodiles, bears and (of course) wolves. And do remember to visit the reptile house.
The zoo has many places to stop over and have a little rest, although during the weekday and early afternoon when we visited, many of the cafes and kiosks were closed. But at least one was open and we could take a moment in the shade and have some water and ice cream.
