Public Swimming Pools in Venice

indoor swimming pool, Venice, Italy
The main city, the island of Giudecca, and the Lido each have a Piscina Comunale (Community pool). These indoor pools offer both public swimming and swimming courses on certain days and hours, at reasonable prices all the year round. They are all in pleasant quiet residential areas of Venice – a haven of peace away from the tourist crowds.

A list of hotels with outdoor pools is on a separate page.

  2. Hi. There’s a good website that lists swimming pools everywhere in the world with maps, times, links to their websites etc. It’s Select Italy and Venice to see the information.
    I can’t find a Hotel San Antonio in Venice in Google. Where is it?
