Charisia (Greek: Χαρισία) was a city in ancient Arcadia. It was part of the Eutresia region.[1] Charisia was named after its founder Charisius, a son of Lycaon. It was abandoned when Megalopolis was founded.[2]

It was located 10 stades (2 km) from Skias (itself 13 stades from Megalopolis) and 10 stades from Trikolonoi.[2] The location of the ancient city has never been found, it is believed to have been situated in the area of the modern Trilofo.
