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. And really, it is expensive for what is is (after two hours you have to pay again). Oh and be ready to... More

I went to the Josephine Baker pool in July on a very hot afternoon and it was amazing. It was worth waithing (longer then 1 hr!, but there is some sun protection). The entrance fee was 5 euro for 2 hrs. Be aware of the fact that you have to wear a swiming cap (they are also for sale in... More

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
