With plenty of cheers from the walking tourists we drove to the top of the street in our wee car. Took a photo and then "sailed" back down to the bottom.

Been here plenty of times, (Live down the road) and I may possibly be desensitized, but it is just a street. Just be careful on it! See too many tourists doing crazy dangerous stuff on it (Like running down it)

I visited this street on a quick break during a business trip. It was just a steep street. I felt like the tourists were disturbing the residents of the street. It was impressively steep though, I glad I don't live on it.

The only thing that makes you to visit is being the steepest street of the world. You will be visiting a street which is steep but once you reach the top you have to come back the same way. Do not expect anything else !!

Too wet to walk up, though many visitors were doing so at the time. Couldn't imagine living there, let alone driving up or parking at the top.
