Historic Streets of the World

 

Steiner Street, San Francisco, California, USA

It also hosts some of the most famous painted ladies in America. A row of American Victorian houses, the Painted Ladies were finished in bright colors in order enhance their architectural details.

Historic Streets of the World

 


Philosopher's Path, Kyoto, Japan

The Philosopher's Path (Tetsugaku no michi in Japanese) is a narrow stone path following the flow of a canal in Kyoto's historic Higashiyama district. While most of the year it's just a pleasant walk, the surrounding trees are bursting with color during cherry-blossom season in spring, making it one of the city's top spots for hanami (cherry blossom viewing).

Historic Streets of the World

 

La Rambla, Barcelona, Spain

One of the most famous tourist streets in the world, there's nothing quite like the buzz of Barcelona's La Rambla. The nearly mile-long street connects Placa de Catalunya with the Cristopher Columbus Monument at Port Vell. A border between the city's historic Barri Gòtic to the east and El Raval to the west, La Rambla was once a sewage-filled stream that separated the city from other settlements, but it has slowly developed into one of the most recognizable symbols of the city.

Historic Streets in the World

 


Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark

One of Copenhagen's prettiest spots, Nyhavn is a 17th-century waterfront, with colorful 17th- and 18th-century townhouses rising either side of the boats and yachts docked in the canal. Tourists and locals alike usually sit down for a leisurely drink at one of the many cafés spilling out onto the streets on both sides of the canal. Christmastime boasts a magical Christmas light display.

Historic Streets in the World

 


Lombard Street, San Francisco, California, USA

Nicknamed the crookedest street in the world, San Francisco's Lombard Street is best known for its one-block section that features eight hairpin turns. The peculiar design was intended to reduce the hill's natural 27% grade, which was too steep for most vehicles to drive down. Today, it's a famous tourist attraction with usually more than two million visitors per year
