Take time out in a Hammam, a Turkish bath house. This is a must for every couple, time well spent in a spa! Do be mindful of the sort of service that you book in for as the traditional style experience may not have the romantic edge you are looking for – it starts with a rather vigorous scrub from an attendant. Other styles offer aromatherapy massages, reflexology and facials.
