Lombard street

Although San Francisco is certainly famous for its hills, Lombard Street takes the cake and is a tourist attraction in itself. It has an inclination of 27 degrees and is considered to be the world's most windy street. It's located on Russian Hill and connects Hyde and Leavenworth streets (one block!). Both pedestrians and cars can pass. It is quite a sight to see cars making an "s" shape down the street. It has 10 curves in a "zig-zag" shape and you can only go downhill. It is decorated with flowers and is a great photo-op.

Difficult to assign a category to this Lombard Street! I must say that it is a street, but a completely unusual street and absolutely like no other. This is indeed the most visited street and frequented by tourists from all over the city of San Francisco, and for good reason: This is the crookedest street in the world! Particularly steep, it was fitted with several hairpin bends particularly impressive to go on foot or by car, day or night. A real curiosity, emblem of the city, not to be missed.

Difficile d'attribuer une catégorie à cette Lombard Street! Il faut dire que c'est une rue, mais une rue complètement insolite et absolument pas comme les autres. C'est en effet la rue la plus visitée et fréquentée par les touristes de toute la ville de San Francisco, et pour cause: C'est la rue la plus sinueuse du monde! Particulièrement pentue, elle a été aménagée avec plusieurs virages en épingle particulièrement impressionnants à parcourir à pieds ou en voiture, de jour comme de nuit. Une véritable curiosité, emblématique de la ville, à ne pas manquer.

Shoelaces

In an upscale neighborhood, Lombard Street is one of the major tourist attractions of San Francisco, the city of hills. The slope of the street as it is only a string of particularly tight switchbacks: small cars are more comfortable than the big American cars! In summer, the show is complemented groves hydrangeas in bloom. The car journey does not stop to see through the cars. Fortunately for the residents, and only at slow speed in the downward direction (certainly less noisy!).

Lacets

Dans un quartier huppé, Lombard Street est une des curiosités touristiques majeures de San Francisco, la ville aux collines.
La déclivité de la rue est telle qu'elle n'est qu'une enfilade de lacets particulièrement serrés : les petites cylindrées y sont plus à l'aise que les grosses américaines ! En été, le spectacle s'agrémente des bosquets d'hortensias en fleurs. Le parcours automobile n'en finit pas de voir défiler les voitures. Heureusement pour les riverains, à vitesse lente et uniquement dans le sens descendant (moins bruyant certes !).

Better with a plastic tricycle!

Lombard Street is longer than a day without bread, but has a famous stretch, which is the zig zag down. Always with photographing tourists from all angles this street. It is less useful street of the city, and you can walk down any of the side streets that do not force down to almost stopped motor. But divertita. Lower it with the car is a must if you visit this city. And the view from the crossing when the casualties are amazing. You run across the cable car (tram so famous San Francisco), left the bay with views of Alcatraz, right front and dangerous slope around the North Beach neighborhood under your windshield. If you visit in September this street you will see the legendary downhill on plastic tricycles people dressed! freak at full power and the less fun (Big Wheel Races). Precaucióoon friend conductive path is peligrooosaaa ... ;)

Mejor con un triciclo de plástico!

Lombard Street es más larga que un día sin pan, pero tiene un tramo famosísimo, que es la bajada en zig zag. Siempre con turistas fotografiando desde todos los ángulos esta calle. Es la calle menos útil de la ciudad, ya que puedes bajar por cualquiera de las calles paralelas que no te obligan a bajar a casi motor parado. Pero es divertita. Bajarla con el coche es casi obligatorio si visitas esta ciudad. Y las vistas desde el cruce cuando la bajas son increíbles. Te cruzas con el cable car (el tranvía tan famoso de san Francisco), a la izquierda vistas de la bahía con Alcatraz, a la derecha cuesta peligrosa y de frente todo el barrio de North Beach bajo tu parabrisas.
Si visitáis esta calle en septiembre podréis ver la mítica bajada en triciclos de plástico con gente disfrazada! frikismo en su máxima potencia y divertido cuanto menos (Big Wheel Races).
Precaucióoon amigo conductor la senda es peligrooosaaa...;)

Curious walk down lombard st.

In the San Francisco getaway weekend of 4 and 5 September we also saw one of the most famous streets in the city, Lombard Street and its famous curves. If you want to know where exactly this striking place, is the stretch of Lombard Street between Hyde and Leavenworth streets. His path as winding, curvy, and was devised to solve the great slope of 27 ° exists in this part of the street, allowing the cars could pass. Drivers should build patience, go very slowly down the steep sloping curves, while those who are walking can make the descent down the side stairs. There is only one traffic section, but also on the sides of the bends are houses. A very special place to live, I would not mind.

Curioso paseo por lombard st.

En la escapada a San Francisco del finde 4 y 5 Septiembre también pudimos ver una de las calles más famosas de la ciudad, Lombard Street y sus famosas curvas.

Si queréis saber donde está exactamente este llamativo lugar, es el tramo de Lombard St. entre las calles Hyde y Leavenworth.

Su trazado tan sinuoso, lleno de curvas, se ideó así para solucionar la gran pendiente de 27º existente en esta parte de la calle, permitiendo así que los coches pudieran pasar.

Los conductores se deben armar de paciencia, ir bien despacio bajando las pronunciadas curvas en pendiente, mientras los que van caminando pueden hacer el descenso por las escaleras laterales.

No sólo es una sección de tráfico, sino que además en los lados de las curvas hay casas. Un lugar bastante especial para vivir, no me importaría.

Lombard street

We knew that once arrived in San Francisco, we had to get the rental car. So before you do that, we raced to the famous Lombard Street! There was a line, normal, but of course it's worth it to get around this very very original street: "the most resinous road in the United States" as they say. It is a staple of the city, of course!

Lombard street

Nous savions qu'une fois arrivés à San Francisco, nous devions rendre la voiture de location. Donc avant de faire ça, nous avons foncé vers la fameuse Lombard Street ! Il y avait la queue, normal, mais bien sûr, ça vaut le coup de circuler dans cette rue très très originale : "la route la plus sineuse des Etats-Unis" comme on dit. C'est un incontournable de la ville, évidemment !

Down Lombard St, we realize exactly where this famous street kicks off with its twists and turns! Scores of tourists are flocking to take pictures and enjoy the scenery in front of them that right on the bay. In just a few meters make their way eight turns, which is why it is called The World windiest road. The record, however, was questioned more than once!

Giù per Lombard St ci si accorge facilmente dove questa famosa strada prende il via con la sua tortuosità! Decine di turisti si ammassano per fare foto ed ammirare il paesaggio in fronte a loro che da proprio sulla baia. In pochi metri si fanno strada otto tornanti, motivo per cui viene chiamata The world windiest road. Il primato è stato però messo in discussione più di una volta!

Zig zag

This street has become famous for starring in many movies. It is a street that has a stretch of both slope of 27 degrees, which in 1922 decided to build a series of banked curves in a zig-zag so they could cirular cars. If you have your own car nbo can lose the opportunity to go down this road, though with enough patience because they try many daring and sharp curves make the traffic is too slow.

Zig zag

Esta calle se ha hecho famosa por ser protagonista de muchas películas. Se trata de una calle que tiene un tramo de tanto desnivel, de 27 grados, que en 1922 se decidió construir una serie de curvas inclinadas en forma de zig-zag para que pudieran cirular los coches. Si se dispone de vehículo propio nbo se puede perder la oportunidad de bajar por esta calle, eso sí con bastante paciencia ya que los numerosos osados que lo intentan y las curvas pronunciadas, hacen que el tráfico sea excesivamente lento.

Visit 30 seconds

We went down the street driving and when we got down we got off the car, the doors were half open, did 3 photos and goodbye! That was my brief visit to Lomard Street .. And it is impossible to park there, so we had no choice but to do so .. In fact, the car you see in one of the corners of the photo, is neither more nor less than our wonderful chevrolet malibu haha ​​:)

Visita de 30 segundos

Bajamos conduciendo la calle y cuando llegamos abajo nos bajamos del coche, las puertas se quedaron medio abiertas, hicimos 3 fotos y hasta luego! Esa fue mi fugaz visita a Lomard Street.. Y es que aparcar allí es imposible, así que no nos quedó más remedio que hacerlo así.. De hecho, el coche que se ve en una de las esquinas de la foto, no es ni más ni menos que nuestro maravilloso chevrolet malibú jaja :)

Curioso de ver

Nosotros subimos la pendiente de Hyde St. caminando, según la guía tiene un 27% de desnivel. Al llegar arriba te encuentras con Lombard St y bastantes coches, principalmente de turistas, haciendo cola para bajar.El olor a freno quemado caracterizó ese momento. Y al fondo la ciudad, a mí me gustó verlo.

This is one of the most famous streets in San Francisco thanks to his appearances in Hollywood films and television series. It can be reached by cable car and walk down. Although it is quite full of tourists taking pictures is one of the points I see in the city.

Very original

I could not believe what I wanted to do my friend from San Diego, wanted to go down with his car on a street, at first my sister and I did not understand the fun, but there we were in an endless queue of cars to take a picture and of course girls was very original.Y as we said we lose again ... but too much glue to repeat.

Muy original

No me podía creer lo que quería hacer mí amiga de San Diego, quería bajar con su coche por una calle, al principio mí hermana y yo no entendimos la diversión, pero allí estábamos en una cola interminable de coches para hacer una foto y por supuesto fué muy original.Y como niñas le dijimos queremos bajar otra vez... pero demasiada cola para repetir.

Walking lombard street

Located between Hyde and Leavenworth is Lombard Street, known as the most steep street of San Francisco. To corroborate we stopped at Lombard St. and we enjoyed the famous street recreated in a sinfn of films. The main attraction of the street is watching the cars down the street as if it were a roller coaster.
