Not advisable to walk as its a very steep climb. Best to take a tour from the airport - the tour guides are informative and patient while you hae time to just soak in the utter beauty around and take photos for your memory book.

The City Under Siege is a lovely little gem of an exhibition with a small number of exhibits and but lots of additional audio information. Well worth a visit.

Cost is about £10 and you can pay with either uk Stirling or euros. Check the exchange rate before travelling as you may get more Stirling than euros and you can pay with either throughout Gibraltar
