We visited Rome’s Zoo, Bioparco. It sounded like a good idea at the time, especially as the kids are not particularly interested in old buildings.
It was hot. And humid. Not a good recipe for happy kids, or happy animals.
Watching the animals made us think that it was more like a prison yard than a nice environment for the animals. We saw some miserable baboons fighting, and some brown bears fighting. We also saw the saddest and loneliest elephant ever.
Makes us appreciate zoos like Taronga Zoo and Australia Zoo more.
