Filbert Street Stairs Reviews
I counted 483 steps up the the entrance of the tower. I could be off, but I'm definitely within five! Very pretty views and neat houses along the climb.
It's calm and colorful. The flowers, many green plants, parrots and nice views at the bay in the middle of the city. I love that place!
