San Francisco is one of the most beautiful locations in the United States, with its steep hills and views across the bay. It's a wonderful city to see by foot or by cable car, offering a cosmopolitan lifestyle with a leisurely pace. The city can be divided up into several neighbourhoods, the names of which may already be familiar. Pacific Heights, Nob Hill, Haight-Ashbury and Little Italy have all featured in many films and TV programmes. Each area has its own attractions, from famous sights to architectural gems to shops and boutiques. A fully integrated public transport system makes it very easy to get around.
