To the south of the Acropolis lies the district of Thission, home to many well-preserved residential and commercial buildings as well as taverns, cafés and hip hangouts – especially popular with the younger crowd.

The area takes its name from Theseus, the legendary king of Athens, best known for his heroic defeat of the Minotaur in Crete. Filled with historical sites, Thission is also home to the ancient temple of Theseion, which lies next to the old electric railway station.

Strategically located between the Acropolis, fun-filled Gazi and picturesque Monastiraki, Thission is a top destination for entertainment, recreation and history, seamlessly melding ancient mythology and contemporary life.
