Really good experience for anyone who likes nature walks or just want to keep fit. There are lots of steps which are quite steep so not ideal for young children or elderly. It is better to do it early in the morning as the heat in the afternoon can make it less enjoyable.

This was a wonderful thing to do. Although it is a hot climb and a bit steep in places it was well with doing for the fantastic views. We fond the climb up the hill from the Rock Hotel to the start of the steps the more trickier climb. It took us about an hour from start to the top.

We came in on a cruise for the day - after going ashore it was challenging to find a taxi to take us to the cemetery where the steps begin. In Gibraltar there are designated taxi stands and only certain taxi stands will take you away from the downtown area. Once we found a willing taxi we were off -... More

I walked to the highest point of Gibraltar (O'Hara's Battery) from the cruise port on 29 July 2015. I walked into town and straight down Main Street before turning on to Europa Road. From Europa Road, I joined Engineer Road which takes you up to Jews Gate. At this point you pay 50 cents to walk the rock taking the... More

Returned to Gib again this year after visiting last June and decided to take on the Mediterranean Steps this time after reading about them. We went to the top of the Rock via the cable car and walked up to O'hara's Battery (the highest point in Gib) where the steps start, or finish depending which way you plan to tackle... More

2 hour trek but stunning views take water and sturdy shoes. The day we went only came across one other group. We went from the top down eg finished at the Jewish gate, Which looked the easier way of doing it

If you need a good work out the Mediterranean steps are for you. it can take a good 2-3 hours of continuous climbing of zig-zaging stones staircases to reach one of the high points of Gibraltar. With amazing views of both oceans, two continents and three countries from the moment you start to the moment to reach the top and... More

Get the cable car up and walk to the Ohara's battery and foolow the med steps down. The walk is tough but there are plenty of places to stop and have some food or a drink. Wear safe, comfortable trainers or walking shoes as the path is well worn and there are lots of lose stones. This is a fabulous... More

This is a very nice walk. Put on some good shoes and bring water with you. You will need it. Study the trail first because there are almost no signs.
