One of San Francisco's original "Seven Hills," Nob Hill—aptly dubbed as "newly rich" in British slang—began as an exclusive enclave of the rich and famous during the late 19th century. This trendy neighborhood offers plenty of stores, shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars, and more for those looking to taste an ample sample of the Bay Area. Plus, its central location provides easy access to a slew of other nearby locations like Union Square as well.
This iconic neighborhood is the reason for the steep, cable car version of San Francisco you've come to know and love through Hollywood, ranging from TV shows like Full House to movies like Vertigo. Take a two-hour walking tour to discover the beauty and heart of this prestigious neighborhood. You'll see everything from the replica of the world-famous La Scala Opera house in Milan to the Venetian Room where Tony Bennet sang, "I left my heart in San Francisco."
