The streets of San Francisco going up and down, and up and down again really give the city a special feel. For me, a great part of its charm comes from that feature.

The city counts a total of 43 hills ! Among them, famous names like Nob Hill, or Twin Peaks. The best way to discover and appreciate them is to walk. It is really impressive when you stand atop of a street and then turn back to look down to where you were 10 minutes ago!
And it provides terrific views on the buildings and San Francisco skyline, particularly on Transamerica Pyramid. Well at least from where we walked :-)
