The main road linking to Nea Filadelfeia and Kifissia runs through Metamorfosi and northwest Tatoiou Street.
The area is made up of farmlands. Farmlands used to dominate the land which included groves. In the mid to the late 20th century, urban development and industrial buildings replaced much of the farmlands. The industrial area is around the northern and the northeastern part of Metamorfosi. Today, most of the land is residential areas. The southern and the central part are urbanized while the northern part is industrialized. The companies include Tudor Hellenic SA on Plastira Street. The Cephissus River is to the west. The Parnitha can be seen and the Penteli mountains to the northeast. The higher parts of the mountains of Aegaleo and the Hymettus can be seen.
