This might be hitting the table very soon for 3p, a number which is kind of odd for Cyclades since it has a very different god dynamic. Question:

Play rules as written, or use the "all gods and 2 offerings per player" variant? and if the latter, 2 metros or 3?

I think Cyclades works fine at 3 with the standard rules (one offering per player, 2 metropolis victory).

I will say, it's nice to have the Hades expansion for three players, because of the way it opens up extra possibilities with the bonus favors for the god "above Apollo."

I'll echo the same. The game works fine with 3 with rules as written.

I thought it was a bit boring with just three. Enough to give us a taste of how fun it would be with more players and I always enjoy good company so it wasn't a wasted evening.

If you're set on playing this 3p I would probably go with rules as written. I haven't tried your variant but it doesn't sound any more appealing than the rulebook. Definitely keep it at two metropoli. Threat of sudden victory is part of why this game is so suspenseful.
