Wanting a great day/experience in Gibraltar


I will be on a cruise next spring with friends and will be docked in Gibraltar on Wednesday April 13th, docking at 7pm and departing 4pm (Celebrity Silhouette). We'll (8 of us) probably get off the ship at 8:30am (or 8am if recommended) and spend 7 hours there.

All of us have never been to Gibraltar and we'd like to have a day of sightseeing that will allow us to see lots of the sights, not just the 'usual' but maybe off the beaten path or 'unusual.'

I would appreciate your suggestions/recommendations.

If you are visiting Gibraltar, it really goes without saying that you should visit the upper rock.

Cable car or taxi are the usual methods, and most tourists will choose one of these. However, if you want your day to be more "unusual" then I would recommend climbing the Med Steps to the top of the rock.

You can read more on the Med Steps here:


If you are feeling more adventurous, you could arrange a tour of the lower caves. Most tourists will not get chance to see these caves, as you need to book in advance. It is a challenging, sometimes hair raising tour, but it is also one you would be unlikely to forget in a hurry!
