If you are in the area, make sure you experience this. You can loop it into a trip to Coit Tower and the entire thing is pretty neat. We really enjoyed it!

This is the best way to get to Coit tower and while, not as famous or crowded as Lombard St. Still a good walk

I needed to keep reminding myself to STOP, and enjoy the view at each landing. The climb is not as difficult as it looks, and the view from the top is worth it.

So nice to see the view from there. Cute houses on the way. A lot of steps though, so make sure to put good shoes on.

After a visit to the Coit tower it is easy to go down the Filbert Steps. Such wonderful, partly hanging gardens are hidden here. Gardeners at work under no so easy circumstances. Must be nice to live here.

When you look up from the bottom it is a bit deceiving because you actually only see a small portion of the steps though looking up you realize the Coit Tower is well above the area you can see. Well, 366 steps later and a...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of

narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

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.
