ride sharing in Greece doesn't work the same as the USA, Canada, or AUS.

That said, taxibeat is probably the best

I use taxi beat as well. Uber and Lyft also work in Athens.

Alternatively you can find a reputable taxi company and call them over the phone and they will send a cab to wherever you are

This is the thing to do, and thats what taxibeat helps with... most Greeks take taxis, not uber, or lyft.

I would definitely just stick with taxis in Greece and forget about ride share. It's not really in the Greek Culture to use ride share.
 
I have never used ride share in Greece, and I am not sure that people really do that. I tend to use taxis, public transport, my legs, or rent a car.

According to this tripadvisor thread, there is an app that Greeks use that can help you secure a taxi called Taxibeat. I have never used it. Has anyone heard of it?

Yes, taxi beat is super popular in Greece. Essentially its just like uber but it uses all of the existing taxi drivers in Greece
 

What is the best spa in Greece?

I am a total spa lover!! I love going to a spa to unwind and relax while on vacation and treating myself to a complete spa experience. I am debating on where to go in Greece this year and I would love to see some great spa locations, preferably a hotel with a spa attached so it is most convenient (I don't like to rent a car). Does anyone have recommendations and personal experiences at a great Greek spa? I am looking to get a massage and perhaps sit in a sauna and jacuzzi. Extra services are a bonus!

Be aware! Some beaches in Greece may be nude

This is just something to be aware of when traveling to Greece and this may surprise you if youre not from Europe. Some beaches in Greece are nude, and when visiting a non-nude beach, you might see some women topless. This is not as popular is it used to be in Greece. I have noticed less and less women going topless but it still happens. It is not considered rude in Greece to do, especially in front of small children. If you don't feel comfortable, just politely move away or go to another beach!
