Hamman Baths

Are the Hamman Baths intolerably hot or is it manageable for someone who is heat sensitive? Can you leave the room if you get to hot?

There are no hamam baths in Greece. You must be thinking of Turkey

No there isn't ddtem.

The fact that theres one establishment that proclaims to be a hammam bath in a city of 5 million inhabitants doesnt mean anything.

Theres no hammam culture in Greece. Hammams are a Turkish thing. There are numerous ancient hammams in Greece dating back from the Ottoman empire who are now in ruins or renovated into different uses.

I m pretty sure you can find a spa in Australia or in Arizona that also chose to follow a hammam theme. Does that make hammams an American or Australian thing that a tourist should experience ?

I dont think so.

I m sure there are thousands of Greek restaurants in Australia. If a tourist from the states or Britain visits Sydney, should he dine there or wouldnt be better to experience something authentic Australian?
