Russian Hill

Perhaps the best example of the kind of neighborhood people envision when they think of San Francisco, upscale Russian Hill is where you’ll find the world-famous crooked section of Lombard Street. Steep streets lined with fine, classic San Francisco homes, served by cable cars, further enhance the neighborhood’s iconic image. Russian Hill’s lofty location also affords scenic views of the city, bay, Alcatraz Island, Golden Gate Bridge and Coit Tower. Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square and the San Francisco Art Institute are all within walking distance.
