Stumbled upon this street by accident and the gardens are a real beauty! Walked down in and it is very impressive as it is so steep but clearly very well maintained. I would love to live here!

I had seen this so many times on TV and in movies and of course had to visit when in San Francisco. It's just crazy that they have a road on hill that steep in the first case but to see the traffic winding its...More

We were taking a cab back to Nob Hill from the Pier and the cabby jumped over to Lombard street since I had never seen it before. It's so unusual and totally worth seeing!

If you are in the area it is worth seeing. It is a very steep walk up from the Fisherman’s Wharf area. Children may enjoy the Street - there is not much to see - a winding road. If you are on a tight schedule...More

Guides say it's the longest curvy street. Indeed, I've never seen anything more hard to drive on. It was also difficult to make a picture that would express all this sinuosity, it only can be noticed when there are several cars on it

Excellent Place to go, a Bit of a Steep Climb but well worth it when you get to the Top, loads of cars come down all times of the days

My wife and I walked up the steep hilly road to see this Street. When we got there, we walked up the steps on one side and walked down the steps on the other side, to fully see all the views. The residents on this...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

Honestly, if you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, have a reputable cab drop you at the top and then walk down. That's what we did and loved it!
