Outdoor swimming pools and sun bathing

It's summer, it's lovely, it's hot, and you feel the urge to take a little dip to refresh yourself between enjoying the attractions of Paris. Well, this summer you can, thanks to the numerous open-air swimming pools scattered throughout the capital! For example, in the heart of the 19th arrondissement, there is the Piscine George Hermant, which looks like a huge liner with its mast hoisted high! Take advantage of its 50 metre length and solarium area to get some exercise and top up your tan. In the 12th arrondissement, the Piscine Roger Le Gall offers two outdoor pools, one for casual splashing around and another for the more serious swimmer. Along the Seine, a few steps away from the superb François Mitterrand Library, is the famous Piscine Josephine Baker, a swimming pool housed in a giant barge floating on the river. The view is great, the pool is open until midnight, and it has a spa and fitness area!
