We didn't see the actual mosaic on the steps but parked for a few minutes to see the view. The houses nearby are stunning.

Look down from the top of these steps on some amazing mansions with green rooftop gardens and in the distance the sailboats gliding in the bay. Wonderful place especially if you are in or near the Presidio anyway.

I always like to get in my workouts while on vacation and the SF was filled with opportunities to get outside and sweat. The Steps are good for a workout (and busy with people from the neighborhood running/walking in the AM), but also a good...More
