> English edition available
Intended both for those who know San Francisco well and for travellers planning to set foot on its hills and valleys for the first time, this book portrays a city that is friendly, magnificent and charming, just like its many neighbourhoods and the treasures hidden in each of them.
Where do foodies go to grab a snack on the run or taste the latest culinary creation? On which beach can you immerse yourself in a good book, all the while having a fantastic view of the Golden Gate Bridge? Where are the counterculture hotspots? How can you find the perfect geek gift for a brother-in-law who dreams about Silicon Valley? What is THE drink to order in the most “in” bar? What choices should you make when you just have one day to explorer the Napa Valley AND Sonoma Valley wine routes? Where do you go to spend an hour admiring the most beautiful Victorian houses? And above all: what are the well-kept secrets that will show us the city through the eyes of San Franciscans, far from the tourist hordes?
Boldly urban and modern in design, the book is full of candid photos and divided into 12 geographic chapters covering all of the city's neighbourhoods. Whether you're on the spot or snuggled into an armchair in your living room, wander the streets of the third largest tourism destination in the United States and surrender to the charm of this surprising place!
- A far cry from conventional tourist guidebooks, this collection offers guides that are lively and evocative, reflecting the author's personality as much as that of the inhabitants of the city in question.
