Do you feel hot visiting Rome? Is the heat not going away? Is it hampering your progress through all the landmarks you want to see?
Of course, one always prefers going to the beach when it´s hot in summer and, although the beaches aren´t far from Rome, many go to Rome to visit monuments and the idea of leaving the city breaks all the plans.
Don´t worry. Here´s a list of a few small oasis where you can cool down without having to rent a car to go to the beach. Here they are from most expensive to cheapest:
If you want to treat yourself Pretty Woman-style and show off that great body around the glamorous pool of the Hilton Hotel, you can do so for 45€ on weekdays and for 85€ on weekends (as long as you´re not staying there, in which case it would only cost you 18€)
OSClub: Right behind the Trajan thermal baths, is this pool, which has a fabulous bar that also serve you fresh drinks and homemade food. If you go all day long, from 10am until 7pm, it costs 20€ but if you go from 2pm, it costs just 15€. However, these prices are only for weekdays, with it being more expensive on weekends.
Circollo belle arti: This pool finds itself in the Flaminia district. Pros: it only costs 12€ all day or half a day if it´s a weekend. Cons: there are many activities going on, which means there are a lot of children and teenagers running up and down. However, it´s good to keep it handy in case you want to organize a private party in the pool, which they will do for you and also add music and food.
Piscine delle Rose: This is one of the best value-for-money ones. For 8€ you can spend your day there and they also have a lounge-restaurant that´s ever so cozy and that has cheap prices.
To balance what you´ve spent in the Hilton swimming pool, find accommodation in Rome which is a lot cheaper than the rest.
