Russian Hill Tours

Though it gets its name from a Russian cemetery dating back in the Gold Rush era, Russian Hill is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in contemporary San Francisco. It is most famous for “the crookedest street in the world,” the winding Lombard Street. Most of its streets curve up and down hills, with Russian Hill itself being one of the “Seven Hills” of San Francisco. Yet the many steep hills grant some the best views of the city, the bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The famous Ghirardelli Square and Buena Vista Cafe, home of the original Irish coffee, are both on the outskirts of the neighborhood. Locals dine along Hyde Street or Polk Street, or stroll past the small French area of restaurants and boutiques near Green Street. Russian Hill is a pleasant part of the city to take a walk, pausing to rest in one of the many parks with views of the city below.

Practical Info

Russian Hill borders the North Beach, Pacific Heights, and Cow Hollow neighborhoods. It is accessible via the Hyde-Powell cable car and two Muni buses, the 41 and the 45.
