Owner description: Designed to look like a Roman ruin, this golden building is certainly a beauty to behold.

This is almost impossible to describe without making it sound tacky (this is my third attempt to write something.!) It is a magical spot that has nothing to do with Art. think Roman Forum and you'd be closer. Highly recommended for a visit.

I'd been to San Francisco a few times but never took the time
to visit the Palace of Fine Arts. Our bike tour took us right in the
area with some great history. It was an enjoyable surprise in a really cool neighborhood.

The Palace is the last remnant of a World's Fair and Exposition at the turn of the last century (OK, it's a replica, it was rebuilt in the late 1960's). It is a stunning example of early 20th Century art deco, with tall Greco-Roman columns and beautiful statuary. It is a very nice place to sit, enjoy the (relative) silence, and drink in the majesty of human creation.

One of my favorite places in San Francisco. The buildings, architecture were stunning. I felt like I was in Paris. It was quiet, and serene. A must see when in San Francisco - you won't be disappointed. So close the bay and view of the Golden Gate Bridge all makes this destination tourist worthy.
