Just in case you’re not feeling the heatwave like the rest of us in Florence atm, I’ll tell you we’re boiling here, I mean you can just read our last 4 articles to understand how hot and humid it’s in the whole country. I think I wrote it at the beginning of every intro. You know those creative juices are flowing strongly in this one. Anyway, we’ve got the cure for you now that you know how hot it is, all those public places you can go and visit to sit, have a nice refreshing drink, take a sweet ass dunk in the pool. Ops….well I said it, we’re gonna go on a whole Florence pool list, you can get some laps in if you’ve only been studying all day and not getting much exercise (sure studying, we know what you’re doing, but its okay cause swimming is great for everything). So here we’ll give you a list of public pools and some other pools that are Hotel owned, but that gives you the chance to reserve a spot (keep in mind this is the pricey option, like tres pricey compared to a public pool.
So here is the Florence pool list you’ll want for the time you’re here and boiling in the heat.
Public Pools in Florence

Between the Artemio Franchi Stadium where Fiorentina plays, and the Campo di Marte station is where you’ll find the Costoli pool, this place is one of the most frequented by Florentines. It’s a kind of Florence swimming pool with a great green area where you can relax if you don’t want to stay too close to the “casino” of the poolside, and if you feel a bit riskier you can jump from one the three diving boards
Lungarno Aldo Moro 6, Florence, +39 055-677521
Open every day from 8:00 am — 10:00 pm
Week round 7.00€
Bellariva is another pool that is instilled in the heart of Florentines, in the area of Coverciano close to the Arno River. There is a lot of green, but the last time I was there they didn’t have many deck chairs. This means bring your towels (aka “teli”). Most of the people I know use this as a Florence Swimming Pool for sports to practice during the week, cause on the weekends it is insane and you really don’t enjoy yourself.
Via della Catena 2, Florence, +39 334-5210999
Open every day from 10:00 am — 7:30 pm
Mon — Fri 8.00€, Sat-Sun 10.00€
Inside the Cascine park, you’ll find the Le Pavonerie the Cascine park Florence swimming pool, this place is a bit fancier as a public pool. Usually, in the summer they also have a fair amount of events for aperitivo, and sometimes its open till late and you can still use the pool in during said events. So when you’re around the Cascine and you’re boiling hot, go in Le Pavoniere for a swim.
Via Mercati 24/B, Florence, +39 055-477978
Open every day from 10:00 am — 7:00 pm
Mon — Fri 8.00€, Sat-Sun 9.00€
Flog in Florence is one of the places that everyone knows, it’s one of those trendsetters that brought almost everything to Florence, from the first public pool (as one can imagine in an article about pools in Florence) and the best names in entertainment. So maybe you know about a gig that you want to see in the evening, get to Flog and go for a swim while you wait.
Via del Ferrone 5, Florence, +39 055-708787
Open Mon — Fri 7:00 am — 10:30 pm, Sat 8:00 am — 8:00 pm, Sun 9:00 am — 7:00 pm
Now, this is not an actual public pool, it’s the pool of a gym, but it’s not actually a hotel so we’re popping it in here. So if you go to the Klab Marignolle, you’ll not only have a great place to relax, but also an amazing view of the hills of Florence. It costs 25 € to get in, so a bit more pricey than the other options, but you’ll love the atmosphere.
Hotels in Florence with pools
Here we’re gonna add a little list of Hotels with pools in Florence Italy that offer pools that are open to the public, obviously they do not come cheap compared to the public pools stated above, but hey maybe you want some quiet time and don’t really care about the price tag, cause I mean you’ve gotta treat yourself some time, I mean we’re talking about Florence hotels with pool. Oh and some of them are 5 star hotels in Florence with swimming pool.
One very important thing is that these places are pretty far out, so keep in mind that you’ll have to take a bus or you can also use a car-sharing service.
