I recently had the good fortune to engage Ms Rosemary Scarmon of Art Ramble as a guide to the “Birth of Impressionism” exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. I had seen many of the pieces at their home in the d’Orsay Museum in Paris, but was hoping to deepen my understanding. Ms Scarmon proved to be a... More

I wanted to learn about art in San Francisco, particularly at galleries and the museums. I stumbled on Rosemary Scarmon, who runs a local art tour/consulting business. I was not sure what to expect, but was extremely pleased with her services. She showed me the ins and outs of the latest exhibits at the MOMA, took me to quality galleries... More

On a recent weekend we were looking for something fun to do with our out of town friends so I booked a tour with Art Ramble.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
