Lombard Street, billed as the crookedest (is that even a word?) street in the world, is a fun attraction in San Francisco. The walk up hills to get there is quite rigorous, but if you stop every so often, you will be fine! It is great for pictures!

This is a must. You read about it and see the pictures but to see it in reality is wonderful. It's very high and quite a steep climb on the cable car but that is the best way to get there. We walked back down to the Wharf in around 15 mins (including the saunter down the steps of Lombard.... More

As with lots of the other hills in San Francisco, climbing Lombard Street will give you calf muscles of steel. This is a great, quirky street as seen in the movies, there will be lots of tourists getting in the way of your photographs buts it's a nice place to visit.

Fun to drive down the crookedest street in San Francisco. Very convenient to the Golden Gate Bridge entrance from the SF side. I used 1099 Lombard St for the GPS address, put me right at the top of the hill. Expect a short wait during peak as everyone takes their time driving down - and so should you, it's pretty... More

Beautiful street/flowers. We walked up the street. Far too many cars - I think it's best to just walk it.

This is the ride of a life time. Worth renting a car just to drive down Lombard St. The twists and turns are challenging in themselves. But the flowers on the side and the homes on the street are equally beautiful . While your at it once your down Lombard turn right onto Jones and drive down the street where... More

Once you are in SF, you have to visit but it is no more than 15' walking and a dozen of photos. Unfortunately sometimes is closed for cars and we couldn't drive there. Closure policies must be much more clear for tourism.

Disappointed with Lombard Street. The way it shows in pictures make you think that it is bigger than what it actually is. Still a sight to see if you are in San Francisco!!

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
