  • The Mission District is an ancient Mexican district of the city which in my opinion is absolutely worth seeing not only for its beauty but especially to see another "face" of the city of San Francisco is different from the beautiful tourist areas but kind Embarcadero. To see the neighborhood first Church Mission Dolores (entering by guided tour only surcharge) then the famous alleys CLARION and BALMY Alley full of wonderful murals expressing social issues very strong. In visiting this area, consider that you will be in a slightly degraded certainly not rich so if by day you shouldn't have any problems in the evening might be recommended not to go there. The area is easily accessible from downtown by Bart, stops are the 16Street (vicolo Balmy and Church Mission Dolores) and the 24 Street (Clarion alley). TO SEE

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.
