Discover the city differently aboard the cable cars

Discover the city differently aboard the cable cars

From the bottom to the top of San Francisco's hills, ride the cable cars, a means of transportation from another time, and discover the city's most beautiful addresses.

Cable cars were put into service in 1873 to transport San Franciscans up and down the hills and steep descents without much effort – the city once had 43 hills. Today, only three remain, which have become one of the major tourist attractions of “Frisco”. Go for a ride in the cable cars, for an authentic and romance-filled discovery.
The Powell/Mason line gives you a view of Lombard Street and its hairpin turns, as does the Powell/Hyde line which, as a bonus, provides panoramic views of the old Alcatraz prison. The third, California line, climbs Nob Hills, from which you will enjoy one of the most beautiful views of San Francisco. A very nice way to discover the Californian megalopolis in a very different manner.
The most curious will continue their journey to the Cable Car Museum: entirely free, you will learn about the history of the tramways and can admire antique cable cars.
