Step out of San Francisco with an excursion to Wine Tours & Tastings in Napa--about 1h 10 min away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the striking landscape of Alcatraz Island, browse the different shops at Ferry Building Marketplace, take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf, and take a memorable ride with Cable Cars.

To find traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the San Francisco vacation planner.

Stockholm, Sweden to San Francisco is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and subway.
