Famous for the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and a glut of cultural attractions, San Francisco is a culture vulture's heaven. Built across 43 hills, this beautiful city has so much to offer travellers. Here are just a few of the ways to make the most of it.
Take a walk: San Francisco is very well suited to exploring on foot, so be sure to take a walk. Particular highlights include Nob Hill, from where you can get great views across the city.
Explore the different districts: There's a real variety of districts to discover in San Francisco, so visit as many as you can. Chinatown is often a firm favourite with holidaymakers, while you can get some fantastic food in Mission District.
See the Golden Gate Bridge: No visit to San Francisco is complete without seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. For the best experience, follow the pedestrian footpath all the way across it.
Ride a cable car: San Francisco's cable cars are a National Historic Monument - and, next to walking, the best way to get around the city. Hop onboard to see some of the city's most famous sites.
Spend some time on the waterfront: The waterfront area of San Francisco is where you'll find some of its liveliest spots - most notably Fisherman's Wharf. Come here to enjoy great restaurants and quirky shops.
