Reopening of the Biopark in Rome. The restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic are slowly being relaxed. For this reason, the biopark, which is located near Villa Borghese, is reopening to the public. Currently, there are about 220 species of animals and plants.
The biopark was originally built as a zoo, with many exotic animals. Unlike other zoos that were used for scientific purposes, this one also offered space for relaxation and entertainment. In the 1970s, it had to be closed for a long time. The reason was an extensive reconstruction. In 1994, the transformation of the zoo into a biopark was proposed and soon implemented.
The rarest species here is the Kleimann tortoise, also called the Egyptian tortoise, which is a critically endangered species in nature. In addition, the biopark is home to, for example, giraffes, Indian elephants and many other animals and also plants. The biopark is open daily from 9:30 to 17:00 under strict hygienic conditions. Visitors can buy tickets online or directly on site.
