All reviews telegraph hill elevator ride beautiful murals filbert steps degree view of the city worth the climb observation deck walk up views of san francisco muni bus lombard street worth the effort bay bridge steep hill interesting history sunny day twin peaks
A great spot to view the city of San Francisco in a 360 degree. The walk up the stairs from down near fisherman’s wharf up to the tower could take sometime for someone that is not use to walking upstairs, but you can access by...More
My wife and I walked here from Fisherman's wharf - it's a bit of a climb but not too daunting (we are in our 70s).
There are good views of the city from the bottom of the tower so we didn't take the elevator to...More
We set off from our hotel in the Fisherman’s Wharf area and headed uphill towards Coit Tower, having been fascinated by the monument since we arrived. Signage was limited, so we just did it the old-fashioned way - aim towards what you can see! The...More
After a delightful lunch in Chinatown, followed by a visit to a bookstore and two dive bars, we continued our walk up the hill to Coit tower. Key phrase here is "up the hill." Telegraph hill is very steep. It isn't a mountain in any...More
We drove up the winding streets to the perch above the city with amazing views of the harbor, Alcatraz and the bridge. It was late in the day so the light was perfect for photographs. I don't think the tower was open to climb and...More
Only 37 steps from the lift exit to get great views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Worth the effort to get to the lift from the road.
The staff were very entertaining, particularly the lift operator and the security lady/photographer at the top....More
we walked from Lombard street to coits tower, and we were proud of how many hills we climbed. anyway there was await to go up the tower, but the murals were absolutely stunning on the walls while u wait in line, the cost was reasonable...More
We were enjoying an afternoon walking from our hotel and visited Coit Tower. The internal tower stairs are not for public use, so we purchased a ticket for the elevator; the queue wasn't overly long and we had maybe a 10-15 minute wait. The views...More
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style.
Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
Don't think I can help you because my husband and I seen the tower from the road and wondered what it was. We walked up the hill (very steep) and paid at the entrance which is just inside the door. There was no queues and no... More
Don't think I can help you because my husband and I seen the tower from the road and wondered what it was. We walked up the hill (very steep) and paid at the entrance which is just inside the door. There was no queues and no time slots. We just "rocked up" and went in. After seeing this place I am so glad we did NOT get this on any tour. I don't think it's worth that. You are only in there for an hour at the most. It's nothing too special but it is informative of a piece of San Francisco's history.

The only way is the elevator . But if you want steps, you could walk up the 483 steps from Filbert to get to the tower itself! We did it and we are 60+ . And yes, we were happy to see the elevator inside. They also give a senior discount $5.00.
