The most popular activity is the ‘Rock Tour’, giving guests a full ﬂavour of the history and life on the Rock over the years to present day. This tour covers, amongst other sites, Europa Point, with views across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco, 24km away.
The Rock also has over 51km of manmade tunnels, including the Great Siege Tunnels, created to defend Gibraltar from invaders between 1779-1783, as are the World War II tunnels, allowing an insight into a city within a city. Out in the open and within the original city walls, which can still be seen throughout the town, the architecture is a mix of Genoese, Portuguese, Spanish, Moorish and British styles.
Gibraltar has a café society with cafes and bars dotted along Main Street, as well as in its two marinas. For the shoppers amongst your guests, Main Street, only a 15-minute walk from the Gibraltar Cruise Terminal, is a magnet for bargain hunters thanks to Gibraltar’s VAT free shopping. At the crossroads of Mediterranean and Atlantic shipping lanes, Gibraltar is also ideally placed to provide a wide range of services to cruise companies, in addition to allowing ships to open up their on-board facilities after 1800 local time while still in the port.
