“Loved It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I thought I was in Roma for a minute. Just beautiful, peaceful and a nice place to take pictures. It is full of tourist however so difficult to get a great picture without someone else in your shot.

This is one of my favorite places in San Francisco. Go, see, admire. An oasis in the middle of the hectic city.
