This place is a must see! You'll not see something like this very often. The zig zag patterned street is incredible and makes it one of the top tourist attractions in SFO. You can either walk up here while you're visiting the city, Uber, or just take the historic cable car. Don't miss it and don't forget to take a... More

The most crooked street in the world - very true! We find this place interesting and fun especially when you are driving down this hill. The scenery is also pretty! I sure recommend this for those tourist coming to San Francisco!

I was staying in Lombard Street (the end closest to the Golden Gate and decided to walk the length. Starts off flat and I started to wonder what all the fuss was about until I met the hills. My goodness it is certainly a relief to finally reach the crookedest street in the world and then you walk down.

A very pretty and winding street. Not a lot to say about it, it's just something that is very San Francisco.

I rode the Powell & Hyde Cable Car to the top of Lombard Street. Take some pictures, then walk down using the sidewalk...not the street. I took the best pictures by standing at the bottom left (looking up)-you capture the curves and nicely groomed landscaping plus the steepness of the hill. Enjoy!

We (family of 4) found this one of the more quirkier attractions in San Francisco. Taking the good advice of a taxi driver (walk, don't drive!), we decided to walk the street (top to bottom) so that we could take our time to enjoy the views, look at the homes and gardens, and read some of the plaques (with more...

Lombard Street was just 4 blocks from our apartment, and we walked to it. The view is very good, but there are many other good view locations in San Francisco.

Though Lombard street stretches for kilometers, this famous part almost a block or two long, is famous for being steep and hairpin turns. It has become a tourists-must-see place and rightly so. Not only the steep drive drown through most crooked turns is crazy, the vista of the bay from here is marvelous.

Crazy traffic at times, a short, weird little street. Makes you wonder how and why this was built that way - but not enough to google it. It's just a place you must stop by, look smile and move on. I'd say drive it once, walk it once, take some photos and remember it forever. It's only in San Francisco.... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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 homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
