Parco della Preistoria reviews
We went there with our 4years old baby, she loves dinosaurs so once we entered to the park she was screaming from the excitement. It takes around 2 hours and half to visit it, taking our time to... more »
This is a well taken care and managed amusement park in a lovely setting It is large the crowd is not felt and it is ideal for children they love it more »
Basically, it's a natural park with few model statues of dinosaurs and other prehistoric specious. You can take a ride on a mini train around the park (15-20 min or so) and pretty much see the whole thing. There's also a zone with some live animals (Sheep, goats, ponies and donkeys), were you can look but not touch or feed the animals. Though most of the visitors are families with strollers, the trails there are very rough and bumpy, and not adopted for strollers. Also, the variety of exhibits and their accompanying information are very dull. Bottom line: though the place is nice and clean and well maintained, it is overpriced and rather boring. It doesn't worth the time and money and have no added value.
This park is lovely for a long Spring walk with young kids, especially if they are dinosaurs crazy. The reproductions are good (although not perfect) and they are well spaced out. The bar served good food (although mainly fried) and the service is very fast. The playground is nice and has plenty of benches for the tired parents to sit on. The entry price is a little steep for the local market and it's a shame it does NOT include a ride on the little road train. Foreign families would not find this price that high. Finally, the maze is simple but great for younger children, who will not get lost even if they enter on their own. A nice addition.
