The base of Coit Tower is a park, with spectacular views of Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. It is free to go in the park, but parking is metered. I did not go inside the tower to view the artwork, but...More

Well worth a trip up the steep steps to the top of Telegraph Hill to visit Coit Tower- the views over the city are second to none. There was a bit of a wait for the lift as only so many people can be at...More

What a great view of the city. Some of the windows are open and the breeze is crazy! After hiking up Filbert Street the breeze felt like a million bucks! You should take pictures with your hair blowing in the wind; we looked like rock...More

This is always a great stop for anyone, but I was a little disappointed that itclosed at 6:00PM. My last visit 18 years ago, I got some wonderful sunset shots of the Golden Gate from the tower.

Taxi from Fishermans Wharf didn't take much time. (Took the bus back - stops right outside.) Got there early and was treated to some poetry from a lady staff member as we were queuing to enter - surreal! If you want a great view of...More

While passing through San Fransisco for the first time we decided to check out Coit Tower. The view is really nice but the trees do hinder some of the view. Hopefully they trim some out of the way in the future. There is a small...More

There are 2 sets of stairs that will lead you up the hill to Coit Tower. We found one of them by accident and came back at night to take the other set. They're both on the east side of the hill, off Sansome Street,...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
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
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.

The only way is the elevator . But if you want steps, you could walk up the 483 steps from Filbert to get to the tower itself! We did it and we are 60+ . And yes, we were happy to see the elevator inside. They also give a... More
