What I can see

It is a ground station of metro line 1 and its name comes from the Thissio district. The entrance building is neoclassical and the station has two side platforms, a footbridge, train parking areas and a depot. The canopies on the platforms bear embossed metal lion heads and the spherical lamps on the metal beams soften the style of the most recent renovation, evoking old Athens. At the platform to Kifissia, the passenger can admire an “open exhibition” with old photographs of the area and engravings that refer to antiquity.

What I can't see

It was the first terminal station of line 1 (Piraeus-Thissio) until 1895. The distance between Thissio station and Monastiraki station is less than 500m, the passenger however, is lucky enough to pass through the Ancient Agora of Athens.
