    Nice to look at from afar, but going to the top is rather overrated. Go to Twin Peaks instead: Better view over the city, no entrance fees and no waiting queue.

    A MUST-SEE when visiting San Francisco! You have to wait for some minutes but it's worth it! I recommend this on your first day because it will you provide you with a 360-degree great overview!

    The staircases to the bay bridge direction was an amazing walk. I didn't go up the tower but the walk was one of those bests moment in San Francisco for me.

    Coit Tower is another recognizable landmark. The concrete tower was built in 1933 and resembles a fire hose to honor the city’s firefighters. Read more

    Visit just before sunset (it's $7 for the elevator to the top) when the Transamerica Pyramid, framed by the tower's arches, is bathed in a golden glow.
