Coit Tower is a great place to see the entire city and get panoramic views. It is located on the top of a very steep, high hill. You can drive up and park there if you have a car. If you are on foot, it...More

My wife and I loved taking the long walk up the stairs to coit tower! While the trip was a little longer, we were rewarded with crazy views of the city.

The cost of this attraction is ok but the queue for the elevator ride up and down can be a dread (the elevator is historical and therefore part of the entire experience). The tower was surprisingly not very tall but still able to provide a...More

It is worth to walk up the Telegraph hill to get the view on the Bay and to have a look on the neo-modern paintings inside the tower.

The views are good from the top but not worth the effort it takes to get there. We walked up the steep slopes and then queued up for approximately an hour (it was holiday season) to get entry. At the end of it, we did...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping

North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
