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 fresh water 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 on-site with the usual assortment — pizza, mozzarella sticks, nachos and ice cream, among other concession snacks.
You can find the Venetian Pool in Coral Gables, around 8 miles from downtown. Admission is $12 for adults and $7 for children ages 3 through 12. In summer, the Venetian Pool is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on weekends. (Keep in mind: The pool is open seasonally, so it is advisable to call ahead.) Also note that once the pool reaches capacity, admission or re-entry isn't permited for the remainder of the day. For more information, consult the pool's website.
