Russian Hill: Magical stairways and stunning views.
Perched along San Francisco’s highest hilltops and one of the original seven hills, Russian Hill is an intimate neighborhood more likely to host wine tours than bar crawls. This charming area channels a San Francisco from the past—sidewalks are replaced by hidden stairways and residents ride the city’s iconic cable cars or you will find them walking around the neighborhood—the best way to get around. Cozy cafes and local favorite watering holes round out this reserved neighborhood’s cordial atmosphere. Not to mention its home to the crookedest street in the world.
