The Most Winding Street In The World

  For the best picture of Lombard Street, take a picture from the intersection of Leavenworth and Lombard Street. The wait to drive down Lombard Street during tourist season can range from 30-45 minutes on an average day, taking a walk down the street’s 250 steps is more appealing for those with time constraints. Tour buses are prohibited on the crooked portion of Lombard Street. Out of consideration to the residents, please remember to be respectful of the homes’ bushes, sculptures, and general premises. The crooked portion remains a one-way eastward street heading downhill from Hyde to Leavenworth Street. Tourists can walk up and down the 250 stairs on either side of the road and snap pictures of the city sprawled across the panorama.
