We went to the fort right by the Queen's staircase anit was neat but then stopped at the Queen's staircase and we're in complete awe of the magnitude of the man-hours it took to carve this out. Simply awesome!!!

Interesting history and a great photo opportunity. Parking is only $3 on top of the hill, and a neat way to spend a hour to get some pictures.

If you are in Nassau, you should absolutely visit the 66 steps. Crucial piece of bahamian history that everyone should be aware of.

This was a fun place to visit and learn some of the history Nassau, Bahamas! Just be prepared for people willing to give you information on the stair case and then wanting a tip for it!

buried down between the walls, the staircase brings you up to the castle area where you can pay to see the view from the top.

If you go to the Queens staircase make sure you get pictures of the waterfall and of the staircase as you are going/up or down. Don’t forget to visit the Fort at the top of the staircase there is a fee to get inside.

Maybe 15 minute walk....is a bit uphill from the cruise terminal but nothing major. Be prepared to be a bit underwhelmed. It’s really nothing spectacular to be honest.

Yes, you can walk it. Get a free city map when you depart the ship. It's only a few streets from the port.
