A view of Lombard Street and Russian Hill from Telegraph Hill. Centered in the picture is the famous "World's crookedest street" portion of Lombard Street.
One of the 44 hills in San Francisco, the Russian Hill neighborhood is most famous for being home to what's been called "the crookedest street in the world," Lombard Street. This picturesque street was designed with a series of switchbacks to help vehicles make it down the extremely steep hill. We definitely recommend taking a drive down the perfectly manicured street, but look out for the hordes of tourists snapping photos at the bottom.
