About Lombard Street

Lombard Street is an iconic landmark in San Francisco, and is one of the most photographed attractions in the city. The street stretches for a block starting from the Presidio to the Embarcadero. This popular one-block section of street in San Francisco is referred to as the world’s most crooked street and features eight hair pin turns.

Contrary to popular belief, Lombard Street is not the steepest or the crookedest street in San Francisco. However, that does not keep tourists from wanting to take a photo of this famous icon. For the best photos, it is recommended to take your photo from the bottom part of the street.

One reason why several tourists come to Lombard Street is because it is located close to other famous attractions in San Francisco, such as the Fisherman’s Wharf, Wax Museum, USS Pampanito and Little Italy. All of these attractions are within a 1-mile distance (or less) from Lombard Street.

Aside from the unique hairpin turns, Lombard Street is surrounded by beautiful Russian Hill mansions. There is beautifully manicured landscaping all throughout this one-block street, which looks spectacular in photos. The hairpin turns were created by design, because the steep decline was deemed too dangerous and treacherous. By adding the hairpin turns, it made the street a lot safer for pedestrians.
