And while the crowds lining up to take shots for Instagram can get a bit much, they shouldn't put you off going.

Said to be the most crooked street in the world, the views from the top are worth the trip alone, while the surrounding buildings of Russian Hill are added eye candy.

The street fell into disrepair in the 1950s after the railroad which ran through the area closed (the tracks are still here), before local artist Benito Quinquela Martín set about regenerating the area.

20世纪50年代,贯穿城区的铁路关闭后(铁轨今犹在),卡米尼托大街一度破败失修,之后当地艺术家贝尼托·金克拉·马丁开始重振这个城区。

Today, Caminito is a street museum, its blue, yellow and green tenements showcasing works by local artists.

如今,卡米尼托大街堪称街道博物馆,它那蓝黄绿公寓楼展示着当地艺术家的作品。

It's best seen during sakura, cherry blossom, season which tends to start in early April and lasts for around two weeks. The path is named after Nishida Kitaro, the philosopher who meditated on this route daily.

The steep, curving street was developed in the 1850s, cutting through medieval neighborhoods with the aim of offering easier access to the new train station. Until then, travelers had to use the steep steps and dark alleyways down from the Royal Mile to catch their trains.

The warren of streets through the Blue City which stands beneath the hulking Mehrangarh Fort are the perfect place to get lost.

The narrow, winding and seemingly endless alleys are lined with buildings that were painted blue to signify the presence of the Brahmin, or priest, caste.

狭窄、蜿蜒、看似没有尽头的巷道两旁排满了涂成蓝色的房子,蓝色象征婆罗门种姓。

The best views are from atop the fort, although for an authentic experience, it's essential to take a stroll through these historic alleyways.
