Over three days I zigzagged my way through large portions of the north beach area and found a little bit of everything. It is home to the most popular attraction to include Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39 and the Embarcadero. Little Italy and Telegraph Hill/Coit Tower...More

My son and I were in North Beach for the afternoon. We went for lunch as well as checked out a few of the shops. Then we walked south on Columbus Ave to City Lights Bookstore which is THE COOLEST! Highly recommend!

It is a live historical landmark - “Little Italy,” with Focaccia purveyors like Liguria Bakery and Italian joints along Columbus Avenue. It was once the home of Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe and the centre of the Beat Movement. Worth experiencing the area.

We had a wonderful dinner at The North Beach Restaurant. The service was attentive, the atmosphere was lovely and the noise level was manageable. So why only 4 stars? Well, we ordered the appetizer special. Our waiter said he would split it into two portions,...More

This is the historic Italian neighborhood in San Francisco, also home to the clubs where the beatniks hung out. Lots of changes over the years, now majority Chinese. Some great architecture.

There's a lot to see here, and so many great restaurants! Our picks were Tacolicious one night and Sotto Mare another - both excellent. We also did Beach Blanket Babylon here, which was a lot of laughs.

I think it is so picturesque and comfortable. There are a few big hills but they are worth it because Caffe Trieste is here! Best coffee in the area. And the ambience is pretty spectacular too.

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.

I would suggest that you map out where you want to go. The Golden Gate Bridge is on the other end. The rest are close to North Beach.
