The area was made up of farmlands and some forests dominated the area. The area was of mixed farming which included pastures, vegetables and groves. In the mid-20th century, suburban housing developments from Athens came over and eliminated farmlands leaving empty space in the southeast. The forests are situated in the east which is Mount Hymettus' largest forest. The forest also contains a valley with a road linking Athens' nearby communication tower. The University of Athens is to the northeast mainly in Zografou. The rest of the area are made up of residential buildings. Kaisariani has a hill in the centre. Much of the land in the east are the rocky landspapes and forests of Hymettus.
The Kaisariani Monastery is founded in the southeast in the Hymettus mountain.
Kaisariani has schools, lyceums, gymnasia, banks, post offices and squares (plateies).
The eastern bypass of Athens is in the east.
