Start at the Coit Tower to descend down to Filbert Steps. To me better view and easier to go down then walk up all those steps. There are several routes to go up Coit Tower without climbing up all the Filbert Steps.

One of 2 ways to get up to Coit tower. Definitely worth climbing up if you want to get beautiful views of the city and the bay.

What a fun way to get to the base of Coit Tower. The staged walk made this steep climb quite enjoyable.

There are plenty of steps, but interesting housed with beautiful gardens situated all the way up. Hard to see how the residents get in and out get their shopping in!

Climbing the steps to Coit Tower, we were excited to see many flocks of wild parrots in the area. Turns out the parrot flocks began around 1990 when one pair of escaped cherry-headed conures were let loose...now there are thousands! Worth visiting even if you...More

We climbed the Filbert Steps to get to Coit Tower. Worth it, but exhausting. SF is so hilly so dress appropriately.

The steps are a part of my personal tour of San Francisco as they lead down hill from Coit Tower on the top of Telegraph Hill to Levi Plaza below. Beautiful architecture and views along the way. A unique spot in town.

Stumbled upon these step after walking up to Coit Tower from the West. It was a surprising find, one of the little treasures that pop up during your travels.

Not sure what the address is but if you go to Coit Tower, both sets of stairs are on the street just below I believe. Since that is well known it will be easy to find and then you can ask someone if needed. Also if you are... More

The restaurant changed hands (don't know when) and became the Dalla Torre. The Dalla Torre closed in 2006 and the site was converted to a private residence.
