Like to enjoy a long walk while enjoying great sights and tastes? You can vist Italy, China, shopping and a fishing village all within a comfortable 6 mile walk. I usually start at the ferry building, head up market to union square, then up through the tunnel to China town and then on to little Italy and fisherman's wharf. Walk back along the embarcadero and end up at the wine merchant. Great day!
