    I would like to know what Italian verb is best to express "get into" when referring to a swimming pool.

    Ex. Wow, it's hot! I'm getting into the pool.
    Ufa! Fa caldo! Vado nella piscina. Or is "entrare" better? Or some other verb?

    Is the choice of verbs any different if you are talking about going into the water/ocean?

    Grazie mille!

    Hi Kid

    A colloquial expression is: mi butto in piscina/in mare.
