If you like stunning views, charming thoroughfares, and the feeling of being tucked away but still central to everything, Russian Hill is the place for you. One of San Francisco’s original “Seven Hills”, the area is home to some of the city’s most iconic sights and sounds: Lombard Street’s eight-turn block, a Diego Rivera fresco, and the cable cars which crest the neighborhood’s hills. Commercial stretches along Polk and Hyde Street are home to a diverse selection of shops, cafes, and bars. Large grocery stores and several local markets are nearby. It’s easy to explore other parts of the city as well – North Beach, Cow Hollow, and the Marina are all within walking distance. Public transit is easy and reliable.
