Overall Guide: Take the drop on drop off bus but non during a rainy day because the best view is fron the open deck. try also the night ride, the views of the city lights worse it. if you take the 48 hours ticket you get a free night ride. you need at least 3 days to visit the city using this kind of transportation. If you arrive with a car find a garage and don't pay for taking the car in and out during the visit. It will be better to use public tranportation, even the taxi is not expensive.

Overall Guide: Vibrant, exciting , busy , captivating,- a real buzz. Must do - the tram from union square to fisherman s wharf is amazing . The view from the top overlooking the bay, and Alcatraz is incredible . Do go on the fire engine tour - they're both quite mad , but you'll remember it forever !!

Overall Guide: Lots to do and plenty of excellent and diverse places to eat. The center is expensive to base yourself in and should you locate outside try and get a residence that shuttles into the city as parking is ridiculously high and sometimes difficult to find. There are lots to do both day and night time so you can plan a fairly longish break in the area (5-7 days) .

Overall Guide: It's small, it's on a human scale, it's America, but it's also different ... I would say almost European. Walk as much as possible, you'll enjoy it loads. Hop on one of the trams that go up and down the hills that characterise Frisko and take the road with the most turnings I've ever seen!

Overall Guide: The Golden Gate Bridge has long been the symbol of the city of San Francisco, it's a suspension bridge that overlooks the Golden Gate, the strait that connects the Pacific Ocean with the San Francisco Bay.

Overall Guide:  Places not to be missed, when in San Francisco are:
Nob Hill, with its elegant hotels and what a city view from them;
Telegraph Hill and its Coit Tower;
The highly aristocratic Russian Hill;
North Beach is where the Italian Community resides but also the artistic area of the city.
Golden Gate Park, ideal to get relaxed, offers a wide range of attractions!
Sausalito and Tiburon, Mediterranean like resorts with yacht harbours and bistros;
Nice, is a visit to Napa Valley where many notorious wineries organize tours as well as ... More tastings of their produce!
Also interesting would reveal a visit to Alcatraz, the ex - penitentiary which once housed Al Capone!

Overall Guide: I love this city on the bay ... i just love it. Useful tip: in ghiradelli square there is an incredible bookstore devoted entirely to architecture and urbanism. If you break your eyeglasses as a visitor - fret not, right d/t in the hotel is a glasswear repair craftsman - merely an hour and you can see again. And great pub with locals, killer cheap pints of beer and pool table ... have some fun while you wait.

Info about San Francisco

122 Km2
16 m
San Francisco lies in an extraordinary bay crossed by the Oakland Bay Bridge and the notorious Golden Gate Bridge, built in 1937.
As San Francisco has been built on hills, a way to get through the city, apart cars or buses, is offered, since 1873, by cable cars!
San Francisco is the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Chinatown and much more!
Residents rarely go to the Bay area but to take friends or relatives there, though the many restaurants and shops, mostly oriented towards tourists!
It is anyhow at Fisherman’s Wharf, where the notorious Dungeness crab can be enjoyed, better between october and april!
The Pier area exactly where the ferries arrive from the rest of the Bay Area.
Among its neighbourhood, is the Castro where lives a strong gay community, an area full of restaurants, a funny and enjoyable place where to go to and stay!
