Mission Dolores Park

Dolores Park is one of the main hot spots in San Francisco and is the major meet-up place for many citizens. Though it is not very large, it attracts crowds of people and the beautiful views make it worth the visit. Recreational resources include a few tennis courts, basketball courts, two soccer fields and a children's playground, but most of all Dolores Park is often used as a venue for special events such as movies in the park. Its surrounding area is known for some of San Francisco's major culinary attractions: Delfina, Pizzeria Delfina and the Tartine Bakery. It is also a great place to chill with some ice cream from the Bi-Rite Creamery. Saturday hang-outs in the park are often events themselves and it's always packed on weekends. Given its location, it's almost always sunny; the famous fog knows better than to ruin the oasis that is Dolores Park. Whether you choose to sit in Dog Beach, Hipster Beach, Speedo Ridge or partake in actual activity at the playground or tennis courts you are sure to have an unforgettable time.

Grace Cathedral

This impressive structure crowning Nob Hill was built on the site of the Crocker Mansion after the 1906 earthquake and fire. One of the main attractions of the cathedral are the stained glass windows. These windows showcase over 1000 figures, with some of them dating back as far as the 1930s. The gilded bas-reliefs that adorn the doors of the main entrance are cast from Ghiberti's original molds for the Gates of Paradise that adorn the Baptistery in Florence. The cathedral also boasts two labyrinths. The outdoor one is made of Terrazzo stone and the indoor one from limestone.

Coit Tower

Conventional wisdom holds that this iconic monument is shaped like a fire-hose nozzle. It is not, at least not by design. The tower is the gift of Lilly Hitchcock Coit, an eccentric heiress who managed to stand out in a city that teems with eccentricity. Lilly's particular passion was for the San Francisco Fire Department. The money she left in her will for the city's beautification was used to construct the Art Deco tower on Telegraph Hill in 1932. The view from here is one of the most impressive in San Francisco, offering unrestricted sights of the scenic Bay, the neighboring bridges, and the Marin Headlands. Inside, the first floor is ornamented with excellent murals, commissioned in 1933, that depict San Francisco's history. The tower's summit can be accessed by taking its elevator for a small fee.

Exploratorium

Developed by physicist Frank Oppenheimer and opened in 1969, this innovative and interactive museum is dedicated to art, science and human perception. Relocated from the Palace of Fine Arts to Piers 15 and 17, the modern space features plenty of new green technologies including the largest solar panel roof in San Francisco and offers over 600 hands-on exhibits. These hands-on displays unveil the mysteries of science and language, and present these theories simply and succinctly. Webinars, special events and seminars occur throughout the year. This San Francisco gem is a must visit.

Non ripartite da San Francisco senza aver prima fatto un giro in questa leggendaria piazza che prende il nome dal primo produttore di cioccolato di San Francisco ed è situata vicino al Fisherman's Wharf. Sulla piazza ci sono una panetteria e diversi ristoranti e, naturalmente, c'è la gelateria Ghirardelli dove si può assaporare il delizioso gelato da dessert Ghirardelli o acquistare qualche dolcetto da portarsi a casa.

Accademia delle scienze della California

Situata nel Golden Gate Park, l’Accademia delle scienze della California (California Academy of Sciences) è uno degli edifici più ecologici della città e ha ottenuto la certificazione di platino dal Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). Il museo ospita il rinnovato e ampliato Acquario Steinhart, completo di una vasca interattiva per le maree e della ben nota palude degli alligatori. Altre attrazioni interessanti sono il planetario Morrison, la cupola a quattro piani della foresta pluviale e la Tusher African Hall. Oltre a queste magnifiche installazioni dedicate alla conoscenza, il museo presenta altre esposizioni di storia naturale e mostre sul riscaldamento globale.

De Young Museum

Acting as a major cultural destination since 1895, the De Young Museum reopened in October 2005 in a facility designed by Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron and Fong & Chan Architects in San Francisco. The building is magnificent and from the observation tower you can get a great view of the park. It is open, airy and massive. It also has a perforated and embossed copper facade which goes very well with the greenery around the museum. The museum houses the world-renowned American Painting and Sculpture collection, dating from the 17th to the 20th Centuries. Primitive Art is highly represented with extraordinary pieces of Native American Art (from the ancient Teotihuacan City), African Art (statues and potteries) and Oceanic Art (shields, dance dress and masks). Admission is free the first Tuesday of each month.

Golden Gate Park

Alla fine del 1800, il primo ingegnere statale della California, William Hammond Hall, e il suo assistente, uno scozzese di nome John McLaren, trasformarono più di 405 ettari di dune di sabbia in un meraviglioso paradiso in mezzo alla città, battezzato Golden Gate Park dall'omonimo stretto che collega la baia all’oceano. Il paesaggio lussureggiante, che si estende per oltre 50 isolati da Stanyan Street all'oceano Pacifico, è caratterizzato da numerosi sentieri per fare passeggiate, jogging, ciclismo ed equitazione, oltre a un campo da golf, campi da bocce, un lago con pedalò, campi da calcio e un campo da baseball. Dal giardino del tè giapponese al conservatorio dei fiori fino alla Accademia delle scienze della California e al Young Museum, il Golden Gate Park di San Francisco racchiude un'infinità di bellezze paesaggistiche e di cultura intrigante all’interno della sua ampia estensione. Ci sono anche diversi parchi giochi, una giostra graziosa, un acquario, una riserva di bisonti e una teatro all'aperto dove ogni estate si tengono dei concerti.

Golden Gate Bridge

Nominato una delle meraviglie del mondo moderno dall'American Society of Civil Engineers, il Golden Gate Bridge attraversa l'omonimo stretto che collega la baia di San Francisco all'oceano Pacifico. Progettato da Joseph Strauss, Irving Morrow e Charles Ellis, il ponte è stato inaugurato nel 1937 come il ponte sospeso più lungo del mondo, con una campata principale lunga ben 1.280 metri. Il colore del ponte non è esattamente dorato come può suggerire il nome (Golden), ma è invece di un arancione brillante, con le sue torri Art Déco che si ergono oltre la densa nebbia che spesso occupa la baia; una vista che è diventata emblematica della città di San Francisco. Il ponte permette la circolazione del traffico veicolare e pedonale tra San Francisco e Marin City; i punti panoramici su entrambi i lati offrono viste mozzafiato sul Golden Gate, mentre il ponte stesso promette una vista impareggiabile sulla baia.

Legion Of Honor

The Legion of Honor houses more than 87,000 paintings, sculptures, decorative arts and tapestries. Some pieces date back 4000 years. The main floor is dedicated to the museum's permanent collection, much of which features the works of Rodin. European and ancient art are also on display at the Legion of Honor. The lower garden level features temporary exhibitions, ranging from Andy Warhol to Francis Bacon. Take a break in the museum cafe, which features light snacks and meals and has outdoor seating. The gift shop, though small, has a nice selection of postcards, books, posters, jewelry and some reproductions from this and other fine arts museums. Admission is free the first Tuesday of each month.
