Not one, but two streets in San Francisco were named in a recent ranking from Architectural Digest listing the “most beautiful streets in the world.”

The popular publication listed 71 locations, with Lombard and Steiner streets making the cut.

Here’s a look at what Architectural Digest said about Lombard Street:

“San Francisco’s Lombard Street has become one of the city’s most visited sites. Tourists often gather to watch as drivers make their way through the hairpin turns. Completed in 1922, the street was designed to slow cars down on its steep hill. Drivers are advised to proceed at 5 mph.”

And here’s what Architectural Digest said about Steiner Street:

“Made famous in such movies as Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) and television shows like Full House (1987-1995), a row of houses on Steiner Street near Alamo Square in San Francisco have become a historic landmark, attracting thousands of tourists each year. The Victorian and Edwardian-styled homes are beautifully painted in various pastel colors.”
