We discovered Citta della Domenica by chance three years ago and since then we keep coming back. It’s a magical and mysterious place where families still walk together through woods …discovering free dears …and suddenly screaming at some unexpected talking trees! (an interesting path through the wood) This year we got lost into the Minotaurs Labyrinth , slept into the little treehouse on top of the owl’s cage…saw the reptile house with the story of evolution.. and, last but not least the trilling adventure of the the Antares Magician… transformed us in a “family adventure team group”: …using the map…discussing the better strategy to find the places… rest and listening to the mysterious creatures of the woods.. (wonderful actors really!) Year by year, we built a collection of meaningful memories. That type of nurturing memories a family hardly gets in this “screen era” . Those memories I recon are an inestimable treasure. We will be always together in this discovering an adventurous ones. ..In there We are teaching our son being brave, curious, facing fatigue, respecting nature, listening, being part of a group and also able to advance alone.. In that protected place that is Citta della Domenica we can free our nurturing inner happiness. May be that’s why our son keeps talking all winters about “Citta della Domenica”. I am glad to find a place without plastic buildings and screens. Everything is made with real wood , stone and metal. It’s an authentic place. Fantasy, nature and reality are linked in a unique blend like wise fairy tales. It is a perfect counterweight for a media and sedentary society. I would like to thanks all the actors and falconers of the wonderful spectacles that for this year are temporarily suspended cause covid alert. (The falconers spectacle, the warrior spectacle in which the children became “Little warriors”, and “the attack to the ancient train” spectacle. ) Hoping you ‘re coming back soon) I know La città della Domenica is a healthy place where the family happiness can develop. It’s a protected and nurturing place for family’s inner relationships , relax, adventures , skills and education. Year by year, they are also renewing historical attractions, employing a notable artist and caring of maintaining the traditional style. Another advantage is that after the first visit of the year you can come for free any time during the year.

The reviews for this were not he most encouraging but I do like to give everywhere a fair chance and we have a very young family so some reviews suggested it may be ok. It has to be said though that la citta della domenica was one of the strangest places we have been. The car park was overgrown and ramshackle and gave the impression that the place was out of business. It was difficult to find the entrance. There were only two people that seemed to be working on the day of our visit. The lady at the entrance was lovely but there was clearly nothing happening beyond the front doors. The first train ride was at 2. Even if we got it there was little to see.. the ‘attractions’ were old outdated or closed. The animals as others suggested were is dusty enclosures.. the only good thing was the view of Perugia opposite. One thing that makes it clear to me just how bad it was is that I have only two photos of the whole visit! It has the potential to be spectacular but it would need a huge injection of money to bring it back to its long and faded glory days.

Everyone going there should not have high expectations. It was developed in the 1960s, and - it seems - not updated since a long time. In terms of accessibility with stroller, only the main path is an easy ride. The map, menus, information panels,... are all only in Italian. However, the kids (2 and 4 years) had a nice time. And all the staff was very friendly!

I am a pretty positive person so even when we were told that the train through the park wasn't open till 2pm (we arrived for when the park opened) and the reptiles were closed till 2.30 (presumably having a lie in), I still was quite looking forward to exploring the zoo, medieval castle and various other 'areas' with my 3 year old. I shouldn't have. The attractions, if you can call them that, are pretty decrepit (I'm a fan of old school stuff, this is not what they are), we actually didn't come across a working ride, the zoo definitely had animals, but they certainly didn't look well after and you ended up feeling sorry for them. We searched for the medieval castle and came across something which definitely wasn't a castle, so either completely missed it or it just wasn't what it said it was. On the positive, we got some good exercise. Not worth a visit.

Unbelievable that they charged us an enormous sum to get in. The road leading up the hill to the place is unfinished and there are no signposts. When we arrived we couldn't work out how to get in. We asked a worker and he directed us to the back gate for tradesmen! We found our way in eventually without paying but we saw the entrance hall and went for a coffee and a ticket. The cappuccino was the only good thing there. A train took us round and we had a chance to see what were supposed to be the attractions. We then walked around. Everything was either closed or in desperate need of repair. Some of the seats, gates, fences etc were rotten, sharp and dangerous. The animals were in terrible enclosures. A boar looked suicidal inside a small area covered in rocks and a tiny pool with hardly any water. You pay extra for the car track which is next to the boating area which was green and slimey. This was an utter disgrace. We stopped at one of the cafe areas and the food was truly appalling. Don't waste your time. If it hadn't been so expensive we would have treated it as a joke but the border level cruelty of the animal areas and the disgusting state of the "attractions" is awful.
