Arguably the ideal American city, San Francisco has it all. Sophisticated, eccentric yet so civilized. Breathtakingly scenic, cosmopolitan and colourful. It counts several tourist attractions: Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Museum of Mondern Art. But San Francisco is not only tourism, as the North American gateway to East Asia and the Pacific it is an important center for international trade, and with Silicon Valley the world hub of the Information Technology.
