WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SEE IN FRISCO
Things not to be missed in San Francisco
San Francisco is unique and full of beautiful bays that offer spectacular views. Among the must-see areas is the famous Alcatraz Island, located in the center of the San Francisco Bay. Al Capone and many others are the most distinguished figures of the bad life that the maximum security prison has hosted. Surely the place is evocative and mysterious as well as ensuring unique sensations as well as an unforgettable panorama.
From the monuments that have made the history of San Francisco we pass to the Bay Bridge, also known as the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The structure looks like a masterpiece of semi-modern architecture and is one of the most fascinating suspension bridges in the world, connecting the city with Oakland. Traveling through this bridge not only allows you to easily reach the charming town of Oakland but also to make a wonderful crossing, enjoying an unparalleled view. After history and modernity can not miss the culture, represented by the City Lights Bookstore, one of the most famous bookstores in the United States and a meeting place for brilliant minds and important exponents like Jack Kerouac.
Finally, in the green of Golden Gate Park you can not neglect the De Young Memorial Museum which houses works of art that come from all the civilizations including the pre-Columbian and African ones. In addition, the museum itself offers a unique design characterized by slabs of different sizes and with relief prints.

Another bridge of considerable importance, to the point of representing the symbol of San Francisco is the Golden Gate.

It offers two unique vantage points, one to the south and is the Fort Point Lookout and the other in the northern part known as Vista Point, for the breathtaking view it gives. Surely you can enjoy the best of this wonder by traveling with a bicycle. Finally for those who want to break the pattern the famous Lombard Street in San Francisco is the perfect place to visit with the most tortuous and steep roads in the world, surely going through it will be characteristic but also a sporting enterprise!
Union Square, right in the center, is the ideal destination for shopping. but do not forget to test the CABLE CAR, the ancient trams that go up and down the hills of the city. You could do a little row to go up but it's worth it.
