100 Places in Greece Every Woman Should Go: Fish Pedicure


Chapter 69: Places to Get Pampered in Athens

The first time I walked by this place, I was surprised to see women lined up against the walls, traditional beauty shop style, but there were no hairdryers over their heads... instead, their feet were plunged into what looked like fish aquariums! Welcome to Doctor Fish, located in the Plaka district of Athens, where a breed of tiny carp nibbles away at patron's toes, giving them an unusual fish pedicure. Just the tiniest bit gross? Maybe. But if you've got tired feet after spent an entire day wandering around this ancient city, and you're the kind who wants to knock another to-do item off your bucket list, an Athenian fish pedicure might just be the thing for you!

  1. I saw at elastyczne few such places on Skiathos, but I have been once or twice here in Warsaw. It's a nice experience although the results are not very impressive, at least for me

    1. I guess fish pedicures are now in a lot of other places, but I haven't seen them here in the midwest. I will have to look up elastyczne!!

  2. I would love watching that. Also, terribly disappointed if it didn't work. I got spoiled by the Baby Feet.

    1. I prefer watching fish in an aquarium vs. having a fish pedicure - feels too weird I would guess. BTW what are The Baby Feet?

  3. I will admit that it does intrigue me.

  4. If it works it would be wonderful. I have very, very dry skin on my feet and this might be the answer :D
