For nearly a decade, the Nolli Walking Tour has provided Bay Area residents and visitors alike a pathway through San Francisco’s public and semi-public spaces of past and present. Inspired by Giambattista Nolli’s innovative 1748 map of Rome, the Nolli walking tour engages the public with urban environs that go beyond sidewalks and streets. This year’s tour focuses on Rincon Hill, from South Park around through the East Cut neighborhood to the Embarcadero and South Beach.
