“Leading right up to Coit Tower”
Runs in three sections from Telegraph Hill to Montgomery Street, across the Montgomery Street median and down to Sansome Street Perhaps one of the most famous of San Francisco's stairways, the Filbert Steps deserve their acclaim. The stairs rise in three sections from Sansome Street to Coit Tower. The lowest section is concrete and steel snaking up the side of a cliff which gives way to a wide concrete stairway. Reaching Montgomery Street, the steps cross the median with a short staircase. The upper section is nearly straight, running through a series of sculpted (and sculpture!) gardens. The stairs are impressive for their length, their wonderful views of San Francisco, the well tended gardens on either side, and the beautiful art deco buildings along the way. One of the most spectacular buildings features three-story high reliefs of San Francisco.
