Aventino Nuoto Roma
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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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.

Adult Admission Price & Policy
Note: Admission policies and prices shown in Swimmers Guide listings are believed to be correct as of the date(s) shown in brackets. If not correct now, please click on the "Edit" button and tell us so this listing can be fixed and the information brought current. This site works best when its users take an active role in the maintenance of the data.
Annual membership is €30, and open to anyone with a health certificate. Swim cards for 10 swims are then €100 (other cards for more swims at less per swim are also available). No credit cards accepted.
Lap swim (called nuoto libero, free swim) times are available daily, including Sunday, mostly in the morning, with 1-4 lanes available, depending. The schedule varies from day to day so be sure to check.
The water is cloudy but otherwise clean, very slightly too warm. Pull buoys and kickboards are available poolside. The facilities are clean. The pool is always busy, sometimes very crowded, with the best times I tried 0700-0800 and 1200-1300. The lifeguards pay attention and move people as necessary, depending on speed and activity.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, even with language barriers.
Swimmers generally follow swim etiquette, and are reasonably polite and accommodating.
In addition to the free swim times, one or two 50-minute coached practices (nuoto controllato) are available Monday through Saturday with the same admission card. These are really fun, with a range of abilities, and the Italians are happy to translate as well as they can (with humorous results sometimes). In Italy, butterfly is called, delfino, (dolphin), and what they call butterfly is butterfly arms with a frog kick.
Admission includes the thermarium.
Bare feet are not allowed except in the pool itself. Shoe covers (which are provided) are required for the locker rooms, and flip flops for the showers and pool deck.
The building is barely visible from the sidewalk or road. It is behind a wall that runs all along the north side of Via Marmorata. The entrance to the facility is a gated driveway across from Via Giovanni Battista Bodon.
The health certificate is a hard requirement. A letter from my doctor stating, "I examined so-and-so on XXX date and found her in good health and capable of performing physical activity," worked for me.
