  • St nice area for a stroll, especially the Cafés and shops at Polk are highly recommended!

  • The winding streets that cross Russian Hill make up one of the must-see attractions in San Francisco. From there you get a beautiful view of much of the city and the famous Alcatraz prison. It is recommended to go walking for a little touring the district.
