Parco Faunistico Le Cornelle - Review
A zoo and amusement park in Valbrembo was created by Angelo Ferrucio Benedetti in 1981. It is spread over an area of 100,000 square metres. The park strives for preserving the endangered wildlife and has reconstructed the original environment for the animals. 1000 animals of around 120 different species are there in this park including mammals, birds and reptiles. The animals sheltered here live in enclosures carefully designed to reconstruct their original habitats as closely as possible. The site also boasts one of the largest aviaries in the country, covering an area of about 7,000 sq m. As you explore this sprawling wildlife sanctuary, keep an eye out for endangered snow leopards, white lions, and especially white tigers, which are now completely extinct in the wild. The site includes a restaurant, picnic areas, a children’s park, and several souvenir shops.

Parco Faunistico Le Cornelle, Bergamo Reviews
We had a wet day in August so decided to visit the Zoo. Its quite compact but all the animals seemed well kept and with adequate room. We ate in the self service and the food was local and fresh, beer was good and cold. Price to get in was reasonable and food and drink fair. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had a good afternoon out, seemed a little odd to pay three euro to park but this seems the Italian way.
I found the park improved a lot compared 10 years ago...long ago I remember tigers being kept in little cages now space seems much bigger. It is sad though to look at the animals like that. I do believe carnivore animals should not be kept in cages...it is against their nature. If someone would keep me in a cage I would go mad. So I went there with my son but I would not going there again cause is too depressing. The bear looked gloom, the tiger crazy and the monkeys extremely sad. Some people was even imitating them...which the 🐒 thought cruel, well to me it was. It is like bullying someone so sad.....I wish they would turn the whole thing in a drive in park instead. It would look less sad on my opinion....but I guess anything that man touches looks like less natural, fake. So probably we should just learn to look at animals in books as it should be.
Usually I feel sad about animals in a cage. But that's my opinion, I have to say the park is good, I think these animals have a really fair life, and by visiting you help feeding these creatures. Bars and tables are spread all across the area, so it's very easy to find food and shelter. During the day sun and heat can be a real pain, both for animals and people.
One of the best small zoos I ever visited around the world. The parking is for 3 euros with many available slots. The park layout is well organized from the entrance to existing. You do not have to keep roaming to find any animal. All of the animals are very close and very visible for the visitors. And they look very healthy and in good shape. Each display is well presented with information plate in Italian and English. Many snacks and food options are around the park. In addition, many picnic locations for whoever brought food from home. Different playgrounds in addition to some rides including the touring train. Do not miss the tigers, lions , elephants, giraffes, Chetia, rhino.... and of course the monkeys.
Such an amazing and clean place! Went there with my family for the day and we really enjoyed ourselves. My 3 year old grandson was so happy to see all those animals. It is the best zoo/park that we have ever been to. Really clean and big. We will definitely go back for the day when we go to Bergamo. Not to be missed!
