This walk must surely be on your Gibraltar "bucket list"! As we have officially reached retirement age, we think it's entirely reasonable to walk down the steps! Even catching the cable car at just after 9am, ensures a very warm walk and it's essential to...More

It's a hard walk up the Med steps but well worthwhile. The views are incredible. Take plenty of water and wear sensible footwear. Once your at the summit and walk back down is easy. A must do it you come to Gibraltar.

On your trek up the Med Steps you will see the Rock from many different vantage points. It is hard work if you are not in shape but worth the soar limbs. I'm a bit scared of heights but the steps have been well secured...More

The steps require above average fitness, if not I'm sure you will feel it in your knees the following day. The view are very nice, and you get to see the Rock from a different perspective than the common one. About midway there is a...More

Hi John. .only saw your post now. yes, take the cableway up and walk down. Wear shoes with a good grip and a hat if it's hot. I suggest you carry a water bottle. After leaving the steps, you "follow your nose" towards the... More
