The basics

Zoom Torino opened in 2007, and its modern layout and enclosures create an immersive experience where different animals share the same habitat to mimic nature. There are no bars or cages here; instead, natural barriers offer an open environment for the animals and exciting vantage points for visitors to admire hippos, rhinos, lemurs, giraffes, tigers, and more. In addition to the nine land and two aquatic habitats, the zoo offers talks to educate visitors about the animals and their ecosystems, and hands-on activities like feeding the penguins or giraffes, a raptor show, and lemur or turtle petting. From June through September, the zoo has two swimming pools adjacent to the aquatic habitats with underwater windows to observe the neighboring wildlife. As Italy’s first interactive zoo, Zoom Torino is a popular destination for families, so purchase tickets in advance to avoid waiting in line at the entrance.
