Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

This is the only such pool I know of in central Rome - but bring your Italian phrase book!
It's a decent deep and cool temperature pool… not a very nice locker room but adequate. Frequented by better swimmers in the area.
It's a nice pool in old building and part of large sports club. Very humid and chlorinated air.

I swam here on a quiet Sunday morning and got a lane to myself! Entry was €18.00! But this gives you access to all areas including the gym. There are no backstroke flags.
[December, 2013]
I swam here beginning just before noon on a Wednesday in September. I had a lane to myself to begin with, but then had to double-up as lunchtime swimmers appeared. The lifeguard was very nice and spoke English well, but reception did not (although nice, as well). The water and air temperatures were just right for serious swimming. Cost was €12.
[September, 2014]
This is a good pool for serious swimming. It's basic but clean and well maintained. Bring your own towel and soap; check valuables at front desk.
Check the hours in advance, as the pool is not open continuously throughout the day.
[September, 2015]
This is a decent pool. The lanes were organized but not really managed by the lifeguards - I wouldn't want to swim laps here when it is busy, as lanes are not that wide and lane sharing/swimming speed etiquette is not that good. The water temperature was OK but there's a LOT of chlorine and it's very expensive - you can use the gym for the same €18 entry fee.
[October, 2018]
I went here on a Saturday morning in February and swam from 8:15 to 09:30; most of the time I had a lane to myself. It's a very nice pool, at a perfect temperature and with crystal clear water. The lane etiquette is good though lanes are not speed-designated, which I liked. The staff were all very friendly but English is limited.

On your first visit, you have to fill out a form at reception and the entry was €18 - I couldn't work out if this gives you a reduced fee for later visits.

You can leave valuables in a locker at the reception. Lockers in the changing room require your own padlock.

This pool is in walking distance from the Rome Termini station or you can get a metro from there so a it's a good one to visit if you have a layover at Rome Airport.
