Did you know that the Turkish bath all started years ago with Cleopatra? It is said that Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, complained of incurable long-lasting headaches. The doctors of that time couldn't find a remedy for the illness; however, one day a young man presented a solution which many found hard to believe. It was a soap-massage in a Turkish bath. If you sometimes complain of body pains, long lasting headaches, excess body weight, or simply have the desire to feel fresh and young, then a trip to the "Hammam” will leave you feeling like a new person. A Turkish bath is a great experience and the perfect way to relax and unwind.
From the pier, you’ll be transferred to a nearby Turkish bath, or hammam as called by the locals. You may either bring a bathing suit or use the pashmina clothing provided at the venue.
