The area is served by San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International airport. Over 40 airlines, including numerous international carriers, serve San Francisco International. Oakland is a smaller, easier-to-negotiate airport served by just over 10 carriers. Once youve deplaned, youll need a rental car to enjoy and explore Napa Valley. Most major national car rental companies have outlets at San Francisco International with quite a few located in Oakland. One good alternative is to begin your trip with a few days in San Francisco and rent a car when you are ready to leave the city. If you choose that itinerary, youll find ground transportation and information on the lower levels of each terminal.
Napa Valley is an extremely expensive playground. Expect to pay a bare minimum of $125 nightly for a room unless you run into a rare bargain. After that, the sky is the limit, with lots of spas and luxury bed and breakfasts this can be a break-the-bank trip, but vacationers whove toured wine country say its unforgettable. Plan to spend around $30 to dine without wine and around $12 for lunch at a moderate restaurant --- but dont stop there, the area is full of gourmet restaurants that are special-occasion perfect.
