NileGuide Expert tip:
Though the baths are divided between male and female days, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays are for both genders.
The Ancient Romans were big believers in the healing properties of baths, and following that tradition are the owners of AcquaMadre Hammam-- an authentic Roman bathing experience with upscale, modern amenities. Bathers start off in the changing room (apodyterium) and proceed to the warm bath (tepidarium) where the temperatures reach a balmy 98°F. From there, you head to the steam room (calidarium) where you will experience a real "steam bath" with 100% humidity and temperatures reaching upwards of 114°F. Following the hot baths you'll take a plunge into the relatively chilly cold bath (frigidarium) which acts as a skin and muscle toner at 82°F. The AcquaMadre Hammam offers also offers massages, exfoliating treatments, and spa days exclusively for women, couples, and even kids.
