My Motorhome: A Caravan of all things !!

Don’t get too excited at the prospect of visiting it. We went there last year. We won’t be going back!
The best way I can think of describing it is that it’s like a chunk 1960’s Portsmouth that has been towed out to the Med and dumped, it doesn’t appear to have had any investment since! There frankly is nothing of real interest to be seen. The streets are very narrow and crowded, there are loads of “tat” shops and plenty of “British” style pubs.
The ONLY thing I could say was interesting was the rock and it’s associated tunnels etc. Don’t even THINK of walking up unless your a tri-athlete. There is a cable car (expensive) and there are slightly lower priced mini bus trips to be had (the roads on the rock are VERY narrow indeed)
If you can find a coach/bus trip from a distance out that’s what I would go for, the chances of finding a parking space anywhere near the rock are infinitesimal, if you DO find a parking space you will need a trust fund to pay for it.
I am sure you can see a bit of a pattern to the responses! There’s a reason for that!
You have been warned
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
