As the hot days continue, you may be looking for a nice dip in the pool during the burning afternoon hours.

Le playtime pool, by the tourist in paris

 

Did you know that Paris offers many pools even within the city? We’ve created a list of 5 different pools for you to enjoy, depending on the mood and atmosphere you are looking for – all with entry under 5 euros. (Unless you want to pay 190€ a day for chic Piscine Molitor, which is also a great idea, as well the more intimate but so cool and chill pools at Off Seine Paris and Playtime, both on the Seine River)

For a charming night swim: Piscine Pontoise

Open since 1933, this pool is situated in the heart of the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank. Named a historic monument, you can come take a swim in a historic and architectural legacy of the 30s, in all of its regale and charm. What’s more, Piscine Pontoise offers additional night swimming (and sauna) sessions from 8:15PM to 11:45PM on weekdays, perfect after a long day out and about Paris.
