Tips for visiting Parco Natura Viva

Flash your Parco Natura Viva tickets and step into a world of animals, where you can stay as long as you like. Most people spend between 4-5 hours walking around the various "continents", plus an extra 30-45 minutes if you're planning to take a safari tour with the car. It can be hot in summer. Wear good shoes, carry water, and take your time!

Your Parco Natura Viva tickets don't just get you access to a close-up with a giraffe, they also get you access to some of the best-value snacks and drinks around. You're never too far from a shaded refreshment stand or a food court with a handy children's play area.

Head to the Gombe Bar to watch the largest chimpanzee colony in Italy while you taste freshly made sandwiches and platters with cold meats.

The Simba Self Restaurant is the place for a self-service lunch. First courses, meat dishes, side dishes, salads, cheeses and a variety of fresh desserts are available. The menu is suitable for children and high chairs are available on-site.

The best time to visit Parco Natura Viva is in the morning, especially in the summer before it gets too hot. When the temperatures rise, many animals prefer to stay in the shade, so you might not get to see them all. Weekends tend to be more crowded with visitors, so a weekday is likely to be quieter.

Parco Natura Viva belongs to a worldwide network of zoos, which join forces to coordinate conservation work. The park participates in regulated breeding programmes (EEP and ESB) to manage species between different zoos as self-sustaining populations, while maintaining genetic diversity.

Parco Natura Viva plays an important role in the battle to protect threatened species and habitats. Its Research and Conservation Department is involved in animal welfare, research and field conservation. Recently, Parco Natura Viva has been gradually replacing all animal housing to transform the venue into a modern zoological garden, representing each animal's natural habitat, and improving their welfare.

Your Parco Natura Viva tickets buy a great family day out, guaranteed to entertain and educate the kids at the same time. The Animaliadi (Animal Olympics) picnic area near the Fauna Park entrance is expansive, and includes vending machines, a playground for kids, and lots of tables found outdoors or under comfortable gazebos.

There are two other small playground areas near the Timbavati food court and near the Manas food court. Both have swings, slides and a small merry-go-round for the little ones.

The best way to get from Verona to Parco Natura Viva is to drive or take a taxi, which will take just over 20 minutes. The driving distance between Verona to Parco Natura Viva is 22 km.

There is also a direct bus that departs from Verona Croce Bianca and arrives at Figara Parco Natura Viva in 23 minutes. Services depart every four hours, and operate on an everyday basis.

I really liked the zoo in general and also all the animals, but I think that some cages in where the animals are in too are really small, so that’s why I put 3 stars.
