Discover San Francisco's best bars, pubs and cafes during this laid-back walking tour of North Beach.

Kick off this San Francisco sightseeing tour at the Vesuvio Cafe, famous for its literary gatherings, which inspired several Beat generation writers. Get a first taste of Anchor Steam ale, which has been made in the city since 1896 or try one of California's world-class wines from the nearby Sonoma and Napa Valley. Still a local favorite, this bohemian cafe has a fantastic array of photos of writers, actors and artist adorning the walls.  

Hit the pavement and head off into North Beach, one of San Francisco's most festive neighborhoods. A beach no more, the area was settled upon landfill, including hundreds of abandoned ships left after the 1849 gold rush. Once home to fortune seekers, local fisherman, international sailors, and writers, North Beach still maintains a distinctly bohemian and Italian flair.  

Explore a number of local bars and cafes, from a bar decked out with sea faring trinkets left behind by sailors to the city's oldest watering hole with its colorful mix of locals and its thriving big blues music scene. Down an espresso while experiencing the atmosphere of a traditional Italian cafe, complete with red leather booths and a classic jukebox spinning 45s. Later, there's even a chance to serenade the house at a local karaoke bar.  

End you San Francisco urban adventure at Washington Square, a local hub that's well connected to public transport, or is ideal if you want to continue exploring North Beach's wealth of cafes, bars and restaurants independently. Your guide will be happy to provide some excellent local suggestions to continue exploring.
