Well worth a visit to see such an unusual street and the beautiful homes. The view is also spectacular. There has been discussion of street being closed to cars or being charged a toll since residents have had rough time reaching their homes. Also, we're...More

It's one of SFO's landmarks! It's absolutely worth the effort getting there, specially if you go by foot! It's just like seen in the movies!

Love Lombard Street:- The World's Bendiest Street. But be prepared to be underwhelmed. Once you are there, it's kind of not as awesome as you will have built it up in your brain. Well that's what I think anyway. But was still great to have...More

We got off the bus at the top of Lombard and walked down the pedestrian steps. Street is beautifully landscaped and a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf.

If in Frisco, this is a must but be prepare, there are lots of people walking the streets and it can be really busy.

Basically all this is is a weirdly shaped zig zag road, yet its fascinating to watch the cars make their way down. I walked from top to bottom myself, I'd recommend it

It's a really serpentine street with lovely green plantings and as such, a unique spot. By day and during tourist season, the part of the road is always full of cars or segways and other tourists taking pictures or climbing up & down the stairs...More

The street just doesn't stop curving. The view from the bottom is actually quite nice. The walk up not so much.

Another must-see scenic spot in SF. It is exausting to walk onto the top start of the street, but it is also interesting to see the cars creep down.

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

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.
