Thiseio (Greek: Θησείο, pronounced [θiˈsio]) is the name of a neighborhood in downtown Athens, Greece, northwest of the Acropolis, 1.5 km southwest of downtown; its name derives from the Temple of Hephaestus, also known as Τhiseio, as it was, in earlier times, considered a temple of Theseus. The historical Agioi Asomatoi church is situated in Thiseio. The area has cafes and meeting points, which are most crowded during summer.[1] Thiseio is served by the nearby ISAP Thiseio metro station.
