San Francisco is one of America's trendiest and cosmopolitan cities.
Liberal both politically and socially, San Francisco is a top destination for the open-minded traveller. The cityscape is one of the world's most famous, with its hills instantly recognisable from films such as Bullitt and Hitchcock's Vertigo. The hilly streets also make it possible to catch glimpses of San Francisco Bay from all over the city. Tours of Fisherman's Wharf and the harbour give visitors a real feel for the touristy side of the city, while San Francisco's numerous and interesting forms of public transport such as cable cars make it a fun place to get around to explore its bohemian side.
