The 5 best swimming pools in Milan Aka how to survive the heat of these days

"If there's no air conditioning I won't go."

This is probably the most repeated sentence of these hours in Milan, where the sizzling temperatures are really challenging us. We keep buying fresh bottles of water, we walk only under the shadow, we deceive ourselves that we would feel better under the trees of the city parks, but actually, we wouldn't want to leave the house for any reason in the world. 

Milan, though, besides shaded parks and the fountain in Gae Aulent, offers moreover a great selection of outdoor pools. So arm yourself with beach towels, flip flops and swimsuit and get ready to make a splash. 

We've selected for you the 5 best outdoor pools of Milan. Don't forget your inflatable avocado.
