Highly recommend trek up the Med steps, although you have to get a clear day of which there are normally quite a few. You are guaranteed lovely views from the upper rock. Take your time and make the most of the scenery.

Mediterranean Steps is definitely the most pristine and memorable way to get to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar. The whole path from the ticket counter to the top takes between 45 and 60 minutes, and is steep at times. It is not exposed,...More

Strenuous but worth every gasping step! The views across the Med are second to none. Its steep and the steps are often sloping paths but I've managed it several times now and I am a lot less than fit. No good for walking disabilities though...More

The price of entry to the Mediterranean Steps has increased 1000% (for walkers), maybe more for people who do not arrive on foot. It used to be 50p entrance and is now £5. £12 for non walkers.

Yes you cam take dogs on the Med Steps but it's not recommended as you might bump into some macaques and the monkeys like to attack dogs. So better to go without a dog.
