Some of the coolest rooftop pools in Europe you have to visit
Even though a European summer is an exceptional experience, it is hot. If there is one thing you need to know, it’s where the nearest pool is (if you’re not close to the beach). But why settle for any old pool when you can enjoy some of the best rooftop pools while sipping on your drink and taking in majestic views?
Here are some fantastic rooftop pools you have to visit when the heat is unbearable:
Greece: Grand Hyatt Athens Hotel, Athens
A five-star hotel built in 1983, the Grand Hyatt Athens Hotel is situated a mere 2.2km from Plaka and 2.7km from Athens City Museum. One of the best things about this hotel? It’s rooftop swimming pool which offers a 360-degree postcard view of the Acropolis. Grab a deck chair, a drink, your sunnies, and enjoy Athens from a different, refreshing view.
Italy: Molino Stucky Hilton, Venice
Not the most appealing name, perhaps, but the Molino Stucky Hilton in the renowned Italian city of Venice has a secret aquatic pleasure that does not include a gondola ride on a canal. The Molino Stucky Hilton’s rooftop pool offers breathtaking panoramic views and reviving tranquility after a jam-packed day on the busy streets of Venice. Sure, you might pay double the price for an Aperol Spritz, but it’ll be one memorable drink!
Spain: Grand Central Hotel, Barcelona
Not only is the rooftop pool and Skybar at Grand Central Hotel in Barcelona an oasis in the middle of the city, but it’s also one of the most popular social gathering points in Barcelona during the summer. Situated in the central Gothic Quarter, guests can take a dip above the city’s landmarks and savour the panoramic views.
Spain: Hotel Arts, Barcelona
Barcelona would not be Barcelona without the iconic 44-story tower Hotel Arts, situated on the beachfront. Yes, it’s known for its luxury standards and exquisite rooms floating above the clouds, but it’s also well-known for its magical infinity pool on the rooftop. It’s truly a sight to see and a place to experience when you find yourself in this awesome Spanish city!
