    I have written to you before and I really appreciated you getting back to me last time.
    I am traveling next summer to ronda . I will be hoping to arrive there by train from either Madrid or Cordoba. The reason for the train ride is that I am scared of driving with all the mountainous heights. My question is about the trrain ride. You took the train as well I think it says in your blog….is the train ride scary with the heights or does it take another route? How about from the station to the main part of ronda? what is that like , taxi ride up or walk how is that ? in terms of being oni the edge of /or the side of the mountain?

    After ronda I want to go to Nerja and am wondering about the road there…again same concern….I don’t want to skip a beautiful place like ronda , I have heard so much about it but am wondering what that will be like?

    @Sylvia, We traveled by train and it wasn’t problematic at all. Yes, there is a huge gorge, but the train doesn’t travel that route. In fact, we didn’t even realize how spectacular it was until we were walking and crossed a bridge and looked down. We didn’t drive, but I know that there are also no roads going up the sheer edge of the gorge – it’s not like driving up a steep mountain at all.

    As for when you arrive, be prepared to walk to your hotel. We arrived in the evening (I think around 7pm) and there were no buses or taxis. Thankfully Rhonda is a very small town so you can walk everywhere, so just make sure you have directions to your hotel before you arrive. There are some hills in the city, but nothing extreme or scary. But if you’re unsure ask your hotel for the best walking route. We learned after the fact that we could’ve gone a different direction on a flat road and not had to drag our backpacks up the hill!
