The charm of San Francisco
If happens to you to catch the first flight to San Francisco, then it is the case to look at these lines written by me, a potential tourist guide of the Californian city. All my knowledge about the city, and on its famous bridge and about the enchanting bay is purely theoretical.
Are generally included in the itinerary, otherwise, go to visit the famous Painted Ladies. Alamo Square offers a view of Victorian buildings in wood painted with pastel colors. Represent the pride of Victorian architecture. With their elaborate decoration, are the peculiar aspect of the city architecture.
