African Winds {Rome}



It is hot hot hot in Rome. The winds from Africa - called the "Scipione" are the reason for the searing heat.

My first line of defense is usually to escape to the beach. But sometimes the trains and traffic and strikes are just too much and I stay closer to home and go to the pool.

Here are my picks for cool blue spots to cool down in Rome.




OS Club - Hidden behind the Baths of Trajan, this is my number one pick. The food is good, the water is cool and there is plenty of ice in your drink.
Via delle Terme di Traiano, 4A

Circolo Belle Arti - Located in the Flaminia neighborhood
Lungotevere Grande Ammiraglio Thaon de Revel, 3

Monday - Friday 07:00 - 21:00 12€.Weekends - 09:00 - 19:30
Half Day - 09:00 - 14:00 o 14:30 - 19:30 12€
Full Day: 15€

Piscine delle Rose in EUR is the best deal in town with a bar/restaurant, gym and spa all on site.
Viale America 20

The Radisson Blu ES - Near Termini station
Via Filippo Turati, 171

Hilton
Via Alberto Cadlolo 101
Monday - Friday 45€
