Fisherman’s Wharf is the city’s most favourite tourist spot, it has a melodious vibe and it is brimmed with people on any given day. Meander in the Musee Mecanique museum and get amused with 19th-century tall ships at Maritime National Historic Park, before boarding the ferry which sails to Alcatraz, one of the most famous prisons of the world.

San Francisco’s most marvellous symbol, the Golden Gate Bridge, climbs 80 stories over the waters of the Golden Gate, the slender section in the middle of sea and inlet. Visit midday or early evening, when the sky is normally clear and either walk, cycle or drive crosswise over for surrounding vistas of the downtown horizon and the Pacific.

San Francisco’s popular cable cars are mobile landmarks with rich history. Their courses are named for the roads they travel, California, Powell-Mason, etc. the Powell-Hyde goes through the most unique territories and rides the slopes. Both Powell St lines are highly demanded among tourists so jump on board in the early hours of the morning, or get your fix on the less scrambled California St line.

San Francisco puts its adoration for food in the historic Ferry Building, erected in 1898 and now changed into a tremendous bazaar showcasing artisanal food only from the local neighbourhoods. Taken on at midday (when all the stalls are open) and join the drove of local workmen. Afterwards, meander north along the Embarcadero Promenade to the Exploratorium, an involved science exhibition hall that pokes you to question how you see your general surroundings. Also make a point to return at night when the Bay Bridge turns into the world’s biggest LED show, with 25,000 lights making unique patterns. Stand on walkers only Pier 14, simply south of the Ferry Building, for the best panoramas.

The world’s ‘most twisted road’ zigs and zags through eight flawlessly landscaped bends, down a long extended block of Lombard Street, on the eastern side of Russian Hill – one of the city’s seven primary slopes. You’ve must of seen it in  thousands of photos and perhaps several movies, as well.  For the best photos, arrive late morning when the haze clears.
