SAN FRANCISCO: BEST OF

I’ve already visited SF years ago but I wanted to refresh my memory of this beautiful  city. And I had to do it only in 1 day.

stop number 1: Pier 39

stop number 2: Coit tower

Walk from Pier 39 to Coat tower. On the way have a look on Lombard St. .

stop number 3:  Lift to Filmore.  Shopping and lunch i Hayes valley

 

stop number 4: Lyft to Alamo square to see the Painted ladies
