Great place to enjoy a swim whilst in Paris. In summer the roof is opened making it perfect for sunbathing as well.

A swimming-pool on (or should I say "upon") the river Seine... tempting. The problem is that the pool is tiny, and so overcrowded that it is almost impossible to swim without bumping into someone else every 5 seconds.

There are many public swimming pools, mostly located conveniently close to metro stations and with small entry fees. The Josephine Baker pool is an experience. Quite small but really well maintained and run this... More
