Descending the slope of one of San Francisco's seven hills, Filbert Street Stairs remains one of the most famous stairways in the city, known for its length and scenic vistas. The stairway features 284 wooden steps running down three blocks and through public gardens and past Art Deco buildings. The gardens, home to some noisy parrots, are tended by the residents of the street and feature interesting sculptures. Look for the building with a facade that features a three-story-high relief of the city.

One of my favorite things to do when visiting the city. You take steps through gardens and then end up at Hoot tower. Then walk down to little Italy for lunch. Great urban hike.

I counted 483 steps up the the entrance of the tower. I could be off, but I'm definitely within five! Very pretty views and neat houses along the climb.
It's calm and colorful. The flowers, many green plants, parrots and nice views at the bay in the middle of the city. I love that place!
