  • It's a few steps near the Presidio Park. The view from the top is beautiful. Around the stairs there are plants and flowers that beautify the place more. You can park on the street. It is a short walk, but worth a go.

  • The Lyon's steps give access to the upscale neighborhood of Pacific Heights via Lyon Street along the Presidio. We climbed 244 steps surrounded by beautiful homes and greenery. The reward is at the top with a magnificent view over the Bay and Alcatraz. To do if you have the physical ability, because that's all a bit demanding. Made up, can then take a nice walk in this beautiful area of San Francisco's Pacific Heights.

  • So glad we added this impromptu stop to our tour around the city. The views from the top are amazing and the homes and architecture you encounter on the walk down (or up) are amazing. Our trip down th...  more »

  • Excellent view. If you are a tourist, you must visit. If you are a local, you must visit. It offers a beautiful view of the ocean esp at sunrise or sunset. The steps and the greenery on each side of the stairs plus the ocean view is spectacular. Please visit if given the chance.
  • Popular with runners. Incredible views on a clear day. Street parking only. Nice, quick, touristy photo op.
  • Amazing place to look out over the city. There is a gate to get into the Pracido. But all the trails head down. It was too late and we were too tired to want to come back up. There is plenty of parking.
  • Very disappointed it was not what I expected at all. There was no mural or painting on the steps as mentioned in the guide. Great for free exercise though.
  • Fascinating area that i pass daily but didn't know was there! Be prepared to climb!

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.
