Top 4 Recommendations in San Francisco

1. Immerse yourself in the stories of the island of Alcatraz

I'm sure you've ever seen or at least heard the name of this little island in San Francisco Bay. In it is the Alcatraz Lighthouse, used as a military and federal prison until 1963. We recommend hiring a tour to learn the most interesting stories that happened in it. It can be reached by ferry from Pier 33.

2. Take a walk in the Fisherman's Wharf neighbourhood

This neighbourhood is a tourist attraction in itself. The ideal place to enjoy a family day, as you can find restaurants and food stalls of all kinds, children's areas and areas where you can see sea lions up close. In addition, the San Francisco National Marine Park, the Ghirardelli Square and the Cannery Shopping Centre are also located there.

3. Get on the tram to see the best views of the city's streets

One of the best ways to get an interesting view of the city is on board the tram, which has been running since the end of the 19th century. The most recommended is the Powell-Hyde line, from where you can best see the steep streets and hills of San Francisco. But if you want to see city views, it's best to go up to Twin Peaks.
