Hotel parking

Most hotels have their own parking and if not at the very least a temporary parking bay so that you can unload any luggage and the staff will then direct you to the nearest parking. Ask your hotel for information and directions about parking during your stay.


Beware narrow streets!

Streets in Ronda are quite narrow, most are one way, and in the older part of town corners and bends can be quite tortuous, of course this is one of the “City of Dreams” main attractions but can be a nightmare when driving a hire car.
