    “The Nolli Walking Tour: Above the New Central Subway” follows the path of the recently established MUNI subway extension leading from San Francisco’s Chinatown neighborhood to the Cal Train terminal at 4th and King Streets. 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.

    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.
