Information of Malta where I stayed for about a week during summer vacation
To the City from Malta Airport
It is convenient to travel by bus from the airport to the city. Bus tickets can be purchased at the airport information desk.
Buses are the main way to move around Malta during your stay and to visit beaches and sightseeing spots. It is advantageous to purchase an unlimited ride ticket for the number of days of your stay at the information desk at the airport.
If you have a driver’s license, renting a car is very convenient. However, please note that Malta is a left-hand traffic.
World Heritage Valletta
Valletta, the capital of Malta, is a hilltop city.
Malta’s only gridded city, Valletta retains 16th-century architecture.
Valletta was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980 with its diversity of architectural styles preserved, including Baroque, Mannerist, Modern and Neoclassical.
Valletta has many attractions such as palaces, cathedrals and museums. And the cityscape is very beautiful, so I recommend walking around Burari.
Then take the ferry from Valletta to the neighboring town of Tas-Sliema. It takes about 15 minutes one way, but the sea breeze is pleasant and you can see the city from the ferry.
