|About these ratings|
This public pool with an Italian village theme is a relaxing alternative for those looking for water and sun away from the fast pace of South Beach. The pool does not use chemically-treated water, relying instead on freshwater from artesian wells.
The Venetian Pool makes for a great family trip, but keep in mind that children under age 3 are not admitted. If you get a case of the munchies, a cafe is available onsite with the usual assortment -- pizza, mozzarella sticks, nachos, ice cream and all that other good stuff.
You can find the Venetian Pool in Coral Gables, around eight miles from downtown. Admission is approximately $10.50 for adults and $6 for children age 12 and under. In summer, the Venetian Pool is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. and from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on weekends. Opening hours are more limited during the week in the off-season and sometimes the pool is closed completely, so it is advisable to call ahead. For more information, click here.
