San Francisco is a unique and breathtaking City. Built on a series of hills that offer memorable views of the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean, the City offers visitors much more than the great Golden Gate Bridge. Besides featuring renowned museums and art galleries, almost every neighborhood is a treasure of its own including a variety of restaurants and shops that reflect the City’s great ethnic, and culture.
Atop Telegraph Hill is Coit Tower, a 210-foot monument to the firefighters of San Francisco. Coit Tower was completed in 1933 and was built with funds left by philanthropist Lillie Hitchcock Coit. It is believed that the tower is designed in the shape of a fire hose nozzle due to Coit’s admiration for the fire fighters who fought the 1906 earthquake fires. The 180-foot tower has spectacular 360-degree views of the entire San Francisco Bay Area. Below the tower are beautiful private gardens and cottages on steep paths, which also command magnificent views of San Francisco. Davies Symphony Hall is home to the San Francisco Symphony. The venue is striking from both the inside and out – with its 1980 modern design to the 72-foot-high performance hall to the enormous rear-wall organ pipes which complete the sculptural effect. San Francisco an experience that you should, repeated over and over.
