It is a nice view and different from regular streets. You can take the cable car, but it is only 5 blocks away from the Pier St level. You can make it on foot, but the way up is hard. There are stairs alongside the...More

We booked a taxi to drive down this iconic landmark--and what a thrill it was! It's an experience you don't want to miss. Great views of the city also.

1 of the most famous landmarks, has to be seen. I don't think there is much advantage to driving down it as opposed to walking. Great view across the city and the bay.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

Honestly, if you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, have a reputable cab drop you at the top and then walk down. That's what we did and loved it!
