Nob Hill, San Francisco

Explore the elegant neighborhood of Nob Hill, boasting superb views and a location conveniently close to downtown San Francisco. A few charred stone walls around the area serve as a testament to its destruction during an earthquake and fires in 1906. Historically an upper-class quarter, it remains so today, boasting a striking cathedral and hotel rebuilt after the earthquake--plus one dizzyingly steep street. The sharp inclines throughout the neighborhood can be a challenge, but cable cars will help you along the way. After sightseeing, explore the many popular restaurants, clubs, and bars, or relax outside in the city parks.

  • For my taste, the best neighborhoods to stay in San Francisco. You can live its steep streets, next to Rusian Hill to Lombard Street, the crookedest in the world, being and closely experience the tramway or cable car. Next to the Castro District, the most beautiful areas I have ever seen.
