This zoo, around 15 mins by car from Pistoia centro, is a pretty place for families to visit. It is clean, animals are well cared for and also, one can feed small animals (like goats). Price is quite reasonable (15 Euro). Small children below 3...More

Reasonable price (€15 euro each) Animals looked well looked after (we're big animal lovers) Loads of picnic areas and places to sit. We were surprised by the variety of animals, they had everything from bears to giraffes and elephants. A lot of animals we haven't...More

First time we have visited a Zoo abroad and I must confess it has been very pleasant. My son (10y) and my wife are both animal lovers and they really enjoyed this activity, away from all cultural and medieval cities as Florence, Lucca, Pistoia .......More

This zoo is the biggest zoo we have ever been to. The animals had large enclosures and were all well cared for. The zoo was so good we came twice. An experience we will never forget. So glad we found this zoo.

I took my children here to give them.a welcome break from the historical sight seeing of Tuscany. The entrance fee was reasonable. The zoo took about 2-3hours to visit in total. There was a gift shop which was reasonably priced and a small restaurant. The...More

Dear Clement, we regret that his experience was not so exciting and above all get a score just enough. Good stay in Tuscany!

In my opinion, the space is large enough for a zoo. You can be close to some animals and you can feed the giraffes (with 0.20 cents). We didn't see all the animal because it was far too hot and perhaps they weren't in the...More

It was smaller than I thought. But it was so hot this day that I was thankful for the size. I have never been so close to the animals at another zoo and stood in awe in front of all of them. I have not...More
