On a recent visit to San Francisco, my boyfriend and I took a bus to Telegraph Hill. We decided not to go up Coit Tower but walk down the Filbert steps instead. What a beautiful hike! The steps (some wooden, some concrete) wind through trees,...More

It is easy enough to walk down the steps after seeing the Coit Tower. There are some beautiful houses and gardens along the way and it was something very unique and interesting to do.

historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

Not sure what the address is but if you go to Coit Tower, both sets of stairs are on the street just below I believe. Since that is well known it will be easy to find and then you can ask someone if needed. Also if you are... More

The restaurant changed hands (don't know when) and became the Dalla Torre. The Dalla Torre closed in 2006 and the site was converted to a private residence.
