Take the trolley from Powell Street (Hyde Line) to Lombard. I didn’t have time to walk to the bottom, but I think that’s your best bet to get the full view of the street.

Being the crookedest street in America (and probably the world), Lombard is best viewed and driven in the spring and summer when the flowers at the various residences are in bloom. It is much easier (and more fun) to drive at night since there is...More

Drove down and then walked up and down. Such a cool piece of history. A great workout if you need your steps or stairs for the day. The homes around are spectacular and it wasn’t too crowded when we went on a Sunday morning. Challenge...More

If you've done traffic, and driven roads clogged with tourists taking pictures, you've done Lombard---how much time do you have to waste on this trip, anyway?

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!
