We saw this while on a city tour of San Francisco, so it was interesting to learn the history of this beautiful place. The surroundings are so picturesque. Great spot for photography.

The Palace of Fine Arts is a beautiful structure. If you like archecture, it's worth the 30 minutes to walk around and take a few photo's.

We visited the Palace of Fine Arts on our last day in the city. It was beautiful and reminded me of Europe. We sat on a park bench and enjoyed the serenity of the view across the reflecting ponds in front of the palace.

This is such a wonderful mix of a very old historic building and a modern museum that you simply must go here if you are in the city for 3 days or more. The ambiente is a bit overwhelming - because the buildings are certainly bigger-than-life. Combine a visit here with a day-trip to the Presidio area and a walk to the Golden Gate Bridge.
