Discover San Francisco
San Francisco is the bustling metropolis of the United States'
West Coast. Famous for a number of reasons, including its cool atmosphere,
modern lifestyle and university, California's largest city exerts enormous power of attraction that transcends the borders of the United
States. On this website and blog Explora Mundi ( Français
you will find the essentials to inspire your trip and to discover San Francisco's must-see attractions.
Every visit to San Francisco must include at least the attractions below. But the largest American city on the East Coast
has many discoveries reserved for lovers of architecture, history, society, technologies, arts and gastronomy, among others. In fact, no other
American city shines as brightly as this city, the birthplace of various cultural and social movements that, from the United States, have
conquered the world (hippies, beatnicks).
In San Francisco, don't miss seeing, visiting or doing:
- the famous Golden Gate Bridge
- Alcatraz, which was once a legendary prison (Al Capone was trapped there)
- walk through the narrow, winding and curvy Lombard Street
- an unmissable cable car ride through the city streets
- visit the historic neighborhoods of the city (see below)
- Union Square, Fisherman's Warf, lively places with good restaurants
- the China Town neighborhood, where the famous beatnick writer Jack Kerouac lived
Arts and culture
For lovers of arts and culture, the Fine Arts Museum is an obligatory visit. An excellent museum, despite being
little publicized. There are several other interesting museums in the city, as well as visiting the historic neighborhoods of Mission, Castro and Haight (neighborhood
birthplace of the hippie movement in the 1960s).
It will also be worth a walk through Alamêda Jack Kerouac and a visit to the City Lights Bookstore. And have a coffee at the famous
Caffee Trieste, the place where Francis Ford Coppola wrote the script for his famous film The Godfather.
