Owner description: Designed to look like a Roman ruin, this golden building is certainly a beauty to behold.

Stunning. We saw this place in the evening, mainly because we had such a busy day, it was the only chance we had. This place looks like it's right out of Rome. Especially at night, the lights, the water, the art under the stars... it really took your breath away. I would love to see it in the daytime, with the sun lighting up the art. Look up information on the history of this place though, there are some really cool facts!

We stopped at the Palace Of Fine Arts during a half day tour of San Fran. The architecture is stunning; the surrounding lake and gardens are a must for the tourist or local to see . Don't forget your camera !!

What a beautiful place; perfect day for some incredible photos. Did not go inside but had time to view the gardens and fountains. Gorgeous

I never heard of this place until my daughter and I took a Segway tour and was brought here. Well we instantly feel in love with it. What a gorgeous place, the architecture was so beautiful and grand and made you feel like you were in Rome. It is half surrounded by a lovely moat type lake filled with swans, turtles and fish. We enjoyed it so much that we came back another day while we rented bikes. I would definitely recommend visiting this place during your San Francisco trip.

This place is just breathtaking. I was surprised by how amazing the place was. I didn't planed to go there, but since I was returning from the Crissy Field by food, I decided to visit this place. The building is huge and the contract between the building and the nature around makes this place as unique in SF. This is a must visit place, for sure.
