Ymittos Street, which is connected with Vouliagmenis Ave. and Olof Palme St in Zografou, runs through it. NE is the large campus of the University of Athens and Kaisariani. With a land area of 0.975 km², it is the second-smallest municipality in Greece (after Nea Chalkidona).

Until the 1920s, the area was partially forested and was an agricultural area, until suburban houses came in the early to mid 20th century. Now much of the area is urban. A couple of movies throughout the mid-20th century were filmed here.

Ymittos has schools, lyceums, gymnasia, banks, post offices and squares (plateies). In particular there are three lyceums.
