For the hot summer weather we visited Venetial pool and really felt refreshed afterwards... it was a bit full and we had to wait until some people cleared out before going in! But once we were in, it was definitely a cool experience!

They don't want you to because they sell food there but I have done it. Just take a large bag with sandwiches. I'm sure they will not ask you anything. Lol
