What to see in San Francisco

San Francisco, a vibrant coastal city on California's northern coast, enchants with its iconic landmarks, diverse neighbourhoods and innovative spirit. From the majestic Golden Gate Bridge to the bustling streets of Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco offers a dynamic blend of culture, history and natural beauty that captivates visitors from around the world.

No cruise to San Francisco is complete without crossing the majestic Golden Gate Bridge, an iconic symbol of the city and one of the most photographed landmarks in the world. Spanning 1.7 miles across the Golden Gate Strait, this architectural marvel offers breathtaking views of the city skyline, the rugged coastline and the shimmering waters below. To fully experience the grandeur of the Golden Gate Bridge, consider embarking on a leisurely walk or bike ride across its span. Start your journey at the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center, where you can learn about the history and construction of the bridge through informative exhibits and displays. Then, set out on the pedestrian walkway, which is separated from vehicular traffic, allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding scenery.

San Francisco is a city of diverse neighbourhoods, each with its own unique character, culture and attractions. From the historic charm of North Beach to the bohemian vibe of the Mission District, there's something for everyone to discover in this eclectic city. Start your neighbourhood exploration in North Beach, also known as San Francisco's Little Italy. Wander through the bustling streets lined with colourful storefronts, trattorias and cafes, and immerse yourself in the neighbourhood's rich Italian heritage. Don't miss the opportunity to visit City Lights Bookstore, a legendary independent bookstore that has been a gathering place for writers, poets and intellectuals since the Beat Generation.

Alcatraz Island, located in the middle of San Francisco Bay, is perhaps best known for its infamous former federal prison, which housed some of America's most notorious criminals. Today, the island is a national historic landmark and a popular tourist destination, offering visitors the opportunity to explore its storied past and breathtaking views of the city skyline. Embark on a guided tour of Alcatraz Island, which includes a ferry ride to the island and an audio tour of the prison facilities. Explore the cell blocks, exercise yard and other historic buildings as you learn about the island's history and its most famous inmates, including Al Capone and "Machine Gun" Kelly.
