    This early spring edition of the ever-popular Nolli Walking Tour series, "Rincon Hill Circumnavigation: South Park to South Beach" takes us through several old and new city landmarks that include: Aqua Tower, Red's Java House, Sailors Union of the Pacific, Guy Place Mini Park, Pier 40, and more!

    This lively tour will provide an informative perspective on how the City has transformed and what the future holds. Native San Francisco architect and entrepreneur, Dave Alpert, FAIA, CEO/Co-Founder, Geopogo leads this special summer edition of the Nolli Tours. Along the way the tour’s co-leader, Josh Bevan, Cultural Resources Planner, Page & Turnbull, will provide historic information about the tour stops and urban fabric in between. Tour followed by an optional, no-host happy hour at 21st Amendment.

    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.
