San Francisco – a holiday in a city that charms


Created by Mondo for Finnair

The most famous bridge in the world comes into view through the morning mist. You have seen the Golden Gate Bridge in countless films, but its beauty can truly be appreciated in real life. The bridge is both huge in size and delicate and aesthetic. The Golden Gate Bridge is the face of San Francisco.

Having seen the main sights of San Francisco – the Golden Gate Bridge, the prison island of Alcatraz, and the cute sea lions of Fisherman’s Wharf – you can happily lose yourself wandering along San Francisco’s hilly streets lined with beautiful Victorian houses.

Hop on an old streetcar and clank up and down San Francisco’s steep hills. Follow in the footsteps of beatniks to the North Beach and of hippies to Haight-Ashbury. Feast on delicious food in Chinatown and shop in the trendy Latino district, The Mission. San Francisco is a multicultural holiday destination exuding with the fascinating history of alternative movements and subcultures. Be ready to leave a part of your heart in San Francisco!
