San Francisco

The ultimate guide

America's artistic city by the bay.

Marked by its iconic rust-coloured Golden Gate Bridge which connects the bay to the Marin headlands, San Francisco is a breathtaking mix of nostalgia and modern day artistry.

On the outside, age-old streetcars devour mighty hills, fog shrouds an "impossible" bridge and the ghosts of infamous criminals call from its island prison Alcatraz. But look deeper and you'll discover an artistic city of hipsters, techies and fashionistas redefining the arts, culture and lifestyle scene.

Don't stay a day, spend a week. You'll need it.
