It's literally only the bit you see in all photos that is like this and it felt a little disappointing. That said glad I saw but fells like they have made more of it than it actually is.

It must be so annoying for the residents of this street to have a succession of cars down your street all day long! It is an iconic film location and totally unique to San Fran so go see! Watch the film first!!

The street is super busy and there are cars and tourists legit everywhere. But worth the trip. We parked closed by and viewed it from the top of Lombard then continued to take a drive through the street. Super crooked and fun drive!

I’ve both walked and driven down this lovely street, iconic to SF and seen in movies, commercials, and photos everywhere. My preference was to walk it if you are able and bring your camera to catch a photo-op not available from a vehicle.

One of a kind street view. Lots of zig zag turns but totally enjoyable view. Lots of tourists can be found at this street. Visit just for a good view of the SFO streets.

Another San Fran icon. Our Uber driver drove us down the street. Large crowds at the bottom and lots of photos being snapped! Fun and free! Enjoy!!

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

Honestly, if you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, have a reputable cab drop you at the top and then walk down. That's what we did and loved it!
