Mini Travel Guide to San Francisco

Over 150 years ago, a gold rush transformed this laid-back fishing village into a legendary city almost overnight, and it seems San Francisco has been a magnet for tourists ever since, although these days more suited to fun-seekers than fortune-seekers.

San Francisco is one of the biggest tourist hot spots in the US, renowned for it's eclectic architecture, multicultural inhabitants and famous landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz and Chinatown.

San Francisco covers a relatively small area, making it a great place to explore on foot. While the city may not be awash with grand monuments, days in San Francisco are better spent strolling the hilly streets, observing the eccentrics, and indulging in delicious seafood dinners. After a day scaling the 43 hills that make up the San Fran landscape, you'll be ready to join the sea lions belly-flopping on to Pier 39.

Explore the crooked Lombard Street, with nine hairpin bends; take a sight-seeing stroll to the Golden Gate Bridge, or give your credit card a workout in the shops of Union Square. Alcatraz Island is city's biggest attraction, a former prison and home to Al Capone, with daily guided tours from Pier 33. With its excellent collections of art and photography, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art  is also well worth a visit.
