Located in the heart of Le Cascine park, just outside of the city centre, Le Pavoniere is the perfect spot to cool down in the summer. It's not cheap( 8 euros during weekdays, 9 euros on the weekend) but the pool is well kept and sufficiently clean. There is a bar where you can lunch or get snacks or you can bring your lunch from home and eat in the shade under the trees.
There is a special bath for children.
I actually have always been a huge fan of Pavoniere. The idea of having a nighttime swim after aperitivo is heaven and I have been a loyal customer going every year to enjoy this beautiful place. This year they have changed ownership ( I think ) and we went last week it kind of resembled "Flo" the disco on top of Piazzale Michelangelo. There were bouncers at the door and a 'reception" which I had never before seen at Pavoniere. Last year the deal was you could get aperitivo & swim for 10 euros which was fantastic (the year before was 8 euros). This year they seemed to have made some changes, lots of lights and a new aperitivo etc and the price has gone up substantially. No longer is a night swim included in the aperitivo which really bums me out. The price is now 15 euros for aperitivo (one drink if I got the information correct) and 10 euros for JUST a swim in the pool , which means if you want to do both, you better have 25 euros handy. It's become a little out of my price range and has now become one of the "special" occasion activities. If you haven't been you should try it at least once!
