Lombard Street

From the series “Top 13 most fantastic and colorful streets and quarters”

The street goes down the hill, so to make this stretch of road safer for motorists, it was decided to cut eight sharp turns.

The zigzag street is decorated with chic flower beds and floral installations. Both sides of the street have walkways, stairs, and benches for pedestrians. Lombard Street is one of the favorite attractions among tourists, as there they can make a lot of spectacular pictures. Landscape decoration changes several times a year, so Lombard Street always looks special.
