It's worth seeing but don't go out of your way to see it. It's iconic, I get it...but it's not do or die like some Dali painting road or anything major like that. Getting any decent picture here is a nightmare too because cars love...More

We walked UP to Lombard St and it is steep just getting there. Wear good walking shoes and just keep saying to yourself, "I can do this!"

best view is from the bottom but walk up the stairs to get a good view down to the city and look out for the parakeets. At the top of the street turn right and walk down to Fishermans Wharf, again a nice view to...More

Together with Alamo Square Park, worth a visit, particularly if on a walking trip around San Francisco. Some beautiful houses, in divergent styles.

Another must do attraction in the heart of a great city. We started at the top of the Street and walked down. Truly amazing how there are actual houses on the street!!

It is funny to watch all the cars coming down like a slow ballet. The flowers were lovely. You have to wear sensible shoes and be able to climb up the very steep hills.

You may have seen this street in movies but if you're in town it's neat to see in person. I was impressed with the gardens along the street as well as the homes. The view from the top is great, of course! The only negative...More

Again, a site that should be seen while in SF. For some reason I expected it to be in a more grand setting. Too much Hollywood-ized in my mind perhaps. A neat street in a rather ordinary location, but stiil would do it again. Steep...More

The line of cars may be long, but it's worth a trip down 'the crookedest street in the world', just to say you did it. Some fabulous homes here, and a great view too! But don't gaze too long or you'll end up in somebodies...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

There are plenty of tourist sites to see in SF and this is one of many to considered a site to see. Keep in mind we walked from Fisherman's Wharf and it was a hike up I think 5 or 6 steep blocks, the type of streets you see... More

Yes it is possible. There are sidewalks, but it will be hard, the hills are steep.

There're buses/ street-cars at the bottom of the street but it's rather steep walking down few blocks to catch the public transport so do take it easy & wear comfy walking shoes & enjoy the view.
