we were on foot when we went to this street, well worth a look , but if you have a car or bike its a must, would be great to drive down it, loads of different ways to get there, hop on bus, or walk,..

free entertainment watching the many unfit people walk to the top of Lombard to make the trek down again. Great views of the bay and Alcatraz and beautiful flowers on the zig zag.

Be prepared to walk like you've never walked before. It's a hike to get up those hills and it's pretty crowded with people wanting to stand in the middle of the street to take photos. Not much to do but watch the cars drive down,...More

Yes, it's a very touristy thing to do (and I'm sure the residents just love the extra crowds and traffic) but it is a great view from the top of the street. Really nice gardens/landscape all the way down too. We walked it, but I'd...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
