The approach is easy from the Milan-Venezia highway. The fee for each adult is 13 EUR, 10 EUR for each kid (but we went on halloween discount day... More

Visited here with friends, 3 babies and a young child. Didn't know what to expect but was really impressed. A large animal park, good prices, very well maintained, lots of refreshment options and generally a brilliant family day out!

Went there on Easter Sunday, on a nice, sunny day. It was very nice to see all the animals are well kept, in clean spaces.

Had a great time here with my 2 year old daughter - the park is well laid out and has a wide variety of animals. This year the park has developed a wonderful space specially for the Rhino and I hope they can do the same for the Hippos and Elephants, which in my opinion are very restricted space wise.... More

A favorite zoo of ours, we often come to Bergamo and always visit this attraction. Perfect size and variety for our children aged 3, 5 and 8. The only downside is the food which is quite horrible.

I am always a bit wary of zoos as I have been too many particularly in eastern Mediterranean countries that have broken my heart. Le Cornelle was not only excellent value it was clean, well organised and despite going on a sunny Sunday it was busy but not chaotic. Tickets at 12euro, car park 3euro, train ride at 2euro and...

I hate to see animals in cages, animals need to be free in Nature not in cages behind bars! This Park is all the way up in the mountains, how can they keep all these wild animals and say they love animals? Iwas very disppointed and left immediately with a sad feeling.

They did NOT care that Tania the elephant will feel home sick and cry for the other 2 elephants that she was separated from. They are just plain heartless and sent her to Tirgu Mures Zoo where she lives in terrible conditiions. This is the first elephant ever in Romania and they have no idea how to treat and understand...
