I am passing through Athens in a few months – I will be in Greece for a while. I won’t be in Athens long, just a few days, and I think I want to visit a spa.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I am interested in more of like a Hamam experience, and maybe get a massage too.

I Googled some possibilities, but don't know anything about them: Hammam Baths Athens - Melidoni 1, Old City Hamam & Spa - Athanasiou Diakou 1, and Al Hammam Traditional Baths - Tripodon 16.
 
I did a quick Google search and found a bunch, but I have not been to any of them. I found the one that you mentioned, as well, and I can't find any reviews. Hopefully someone who has been will be able to chime in.
 

Travel Tips for Naxos

I'm planning a trip to the island of Naxos soon and I'm reaching out for some guidance and tips.

First off, I've heard that Naxos is a haven for foodies – any recommendations on local foods I absolutely must try or the best places to eat?

Exploring the cultural heritage of Naxos is also high on my agenda. I understand there are plenty of historical sites and ruins that abound. For those of you who've wandered the island's ancient paths, which historical spots would you say I need to see??

Also, I’d love to hear about your favorite beaches. Are there any hidden gems I should know about? Places that aren’t too crowded perhaps?

Thanks!

Taking an Architecture Tour in Greece?

I'm planning a trip to Greece and I'm really interested in taking an architecture tour to explore the rich history and unique styles of Greek architecture. Could anyone recommend reputable tour companies or guides who specialize in architecture tours? I'm particularly interested in visiting iconic sites like the Acropolis in Athens, ancient Greek temples, and perhaps lesser-known gems off the beaten path.

Additionally, what are some must-see architectural wonders that shouldn't be missed? Are there specific regions or cities known for their architectural significance that I should prioritize?

Any tips on what to expect during an architecture tour in Greece, including the best times to visit these sites or any local customs to be aware of, would be greatly appreciated.

Is Marathon a good day trip from Athens?

I've been planning an itinerary for my upcoming trip to Athens, and I've always been fascinated by the historical significance of Marathon. Considering its role in ancient history and the famous battle that took place there, it seems like a place that might be worth a visit.

However, I'm on the fence about dedicating a whole day trip to Marathon. From what I understand, it isn’t too far from Athens, but I'm trying to weigh up whether the experience is worthy compared to spending that time exploring more within the city itself.

Has anyone made the day trip to Marathon from Athens? Was it an enriching experience, and what are the can't-miss sights? Is the archeological site/museum there engaging enough for a history buff? Also, how about the logistics – is it easy to get to by public transport, or would you suggest renting a car or going with a tour?

I am just trying to decide if it's worth it, or if I should plan to stay overnight. Thanks!
