Decided to walk this street after lunch. O. M. G. It was no easy feat. But it was amazing. The homes were interesting. The owners must be very patient as so many people were there to see this. I’ve been on steep hills before but...More

Amazing street. One of its kind. Really cool. Tried the walk down and up the walkways. Coming up was a real test but made it fine. Must see in San Francisco !

Use a tram in Union Square. A place with a nice road and surrounding hills. I want to visit when the flowers are in full bloom.

This street is a must see to believe in San Francisco. Be prepared for a hike up very steep hills to get there. Although you can drive down it, walking it really allows you to appreciate the homes the gardens and the road itself

This was one of the places we had on our “to do list” in San Francisco. Was quite underwhelming when we got there. We walked down the steps which was definitely easier than going up! We found that you couldn’t really appreciate the crookedness from...More

This is a really cool landmark which is featured in movies and games. If you don’t fancy driving it, I suggest walking it from top to bottom. Jump on the Powell-Hyde cable car and get off at Lombard Street, that way you’ll be walking downhill...More

Nice walk down to see the flowers and houses. But don't really see what all the fuss is about. Worth it just to tick the box

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.
