Hotels in Thission Athens area
Thisio, the small but lively quarter west of the ancient agora, takes its name from the best-preserved classical-era temple in Greece. Though the shrine was built to the god Hephaestus and is formally known as the Hephaestum, among its most noticeable features are the reliefs of Athenian hero and king Theseus carved on its metopes. It informally became known as the Theseion (Temple of Theseus), lending its name to the surrounding neighborhood.
With the infusion of several new art galleries, the renovation of old buildings into cultural spaces, high-end restaurants and trendy outdoor cafes, plus the addition of pretty, paved walkways linking up the area with the rest of Ancient Athens' major sites, suddenly Thissio is hopping every night.
The places to see are around the newly landscaped metro station, on Iraklidon (named after Hercules), the quiet, tree-lined Eptachalkou, home to cutting edge galleries, home style ouzeries (serving ouzo) and a few small churches.
