  • San Francisco's Little Italy is located in the central area (adjacent to both Chinatown and the Financial District). The main street is without doubt the long Columbus Av. while among the sights there is surely the Cathedral of Peter and Paul, the ancient CityLighits library, the adjacent alley Kerouac, and historians Café Tosca, Trieste and especially Vesuvius. Very nice also the view that the Columbus Av. you will have the famous Transamerica Pyramid. As for the restaurants can't make judgments because I don't really eat Italian cuisine abroad however the area is full of locals very popular so the quality would be good. Combine a visit to the Italian District Council with the parallel Grant AV./Chinatown!!!

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
