Perched along San Francisco’s highest hilltops and among its most crooked streets (Lombard Street sure is squiggly!), 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. Cozy cafes and local-favorite watering holes round out this reserved neighborhood’s cordial repertoire.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
