After looking at the tower from our hotel, we visited and saw a beautiful view of the city. Wear comfortable shoes as the steps leading up to the tower are worn.

The beautiful tower was closed when we arrived but we were still quite happy to see ithe exterior. The tower is adjacent to an amazing and inviting neighborhood overlooking the Bay Bridge with Alcatraz in view. Such beautiful vistas!

Was ok. Seems expensive to look out a tower. Staff were grumpy and not overly friendly; barking orders like we were sheep.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian

for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North

suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

I suggest you read what is written on the website, and, if you don't trust what you read, email (or call if you can locate a number), and ask?!

Not sure what these people are talking about. I wish people wouldn't answer questions if they really do not know the answer, but... You absolutely can pre-purchase a ticket for a specific date and time. With that ticket... More
