What a unique "street"- we explored Filbert Street stairs after visiting the Coit Tower. Thankful for the bus ride up because we were able to walk downhill the whole way. What an interesting place to live.. the gardens were incredible. Worth the strenuous effort!

This is the proper way to get to Coit Tower. Walk up the steps. You get good views but also get to see the beautiful gardens. The steps are wooden but not steep or slippery. When we reached the top, we took the bus back...More

The Filbert Steps are much prettier than the Greenwich Steps so I’d recommend doing Filbert both up to the Coit Tower and back down again. The steps are an easy climb with lots of breaks to stop and look at the views.

We were surprised to see such lush, almost tropical, gardens in San Francisco! We caught a glimpse of some parrots, too.

Although despite what other reviewers have claimed you don't need to be in fit condition to tackle this climb (you can take it slowly) it is hard work! For that reason you appreciate the fascinating little excursion into a nest of houses and gardens built...More

You will have a view, be passing some very old cottages, and have a look of marvelous views on your way to Coit Tower. Do be in shape for the stairs!

Steps take you basically from Levi's plaza to the Coit Tower. Views along the way are incredible, including the views of the residents homes and yards who live next to the stairs. Also interesting to see how some homeowners have incorporated the adjacent hillside into...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
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.
