Long Weekend in San Francisco – Fall 2015

Four days in beautiful San Francisco, California.



DAY 1 - November 5 - Thursday - An introduction to San Francisco

Upon arrival in San Francisco, guests should make their way to the hotel located in the city center. Time permitting, we may be able to fit in a short city center walking tour. If not, we will instead meet for drinks, welcome conversation and dinner at an exclusive venue. Night in San Francisco

DAY 2 - November 6 - Friday - A city of art and beauty

The group will start the day with a guided tour of the city’s most picturesque corners. We will visit the Haight District and make a few stops to admire the colorful Victorian and Edwardian houses known as the Painted Ladies. Next stop is Lombard street, known as the most crooked street in the world. We will move on to Coit Tower to enjoy both an amazing 360-degree view of the Bay of San Francisco and the murals decorating the inside of the tower’s base. We will have a delicious lunch in Chinatown before continuing on to view the artwork of Diego Rivera at the San Francisco Art Institute and at the City Club. The evening will conclude with some free time before heading to the theatre. Night in San Francisco

DAY 3 - November 7 - Saturday - Napa Valley

Today the group will visit a historic winery in Napa Valley. En route we will make a stop to the Conservatory of Flowers, a unique collection of rare and exotic plants. As we continue on, we will have the chance to cross and admire the Golden Gate Bridge in all its beauty. Upon arriving in Napa, we will visit the winery of our good friend Dario, a man who decided many years ago to build a Tuscan-style castle in this valley and to pursue his grandfather’s art of making wine. We will visit the castle and enjoy an unforgettable lunch before departing back to San Francisco for some time to relax and shop. Night in San Francisco

DAY 4 - November 8 - Sunday - Alcatraz and farewells

This morning we will visit Alcatraz for a special tour before guests are driven back to the airport to catch flights home.
