We are travelling to Malta in a couple of weeks and this will be our second visit. Last time we loved the quirky old yellow buses and the fares were really cheap! Has anyone got a comparison with how they are now? Are the fares still very reasonable? Are the services much the same? We will be in Bugibba again, which has its own bus station, and not all journeys went-through Valletta. Is that much the same also? Many thanks!
I have often thought of going to Malta during the winter for more than 2 weeks, 2 months would be a dream.
So my question is about where to stay, How would I go about finding a flat to rent that would not cost the earth ?
Thanks for any help.
Does anyone know how much the ferry is one way to Sicily ? I have been on VIrtu ferries website and cannot imagine the price really is 90-100 euro for a one way 60 mile trip? Or am I wrong ?
Can anyone tell me is there a ferry operating between Valletta and Vittoriosa?
Ideally could you let me know where in Valletta the ferry goes from,times and price.

We're limited as to when we can go to Malta - summer or the Easter holidays. We're told that summer would be too hot and humid for us Brits. So we'd settled on Easter next year, which comes, unfortunately, rather early (Easter Monday = April 1st), resulting in being there during the first week or so of April. Guide books suggest April averages only 16-18 degrees C, so the first week could be even lower than that - hardly sunbathing weather. Do we give up and go somewhere else, or have I misunderstood? All help appreciated! Steve

We're thinking of holidaying in Malta and Gozo in August, but we're worried that temperatures might be well over 30 deg C and perhaps rather hot for us average Brits. Thoughts?

Can anyone share experience of car rental in Malta, any recommended agency? I just need a small car (prefer automatic), better with full insurance availble, any experience of value agency? I prefer to take the car from the airport, rent around 1 week and return at the Valletta port (or around that area) or suggesting riding on bus is easy enough than renting a car? thanks a lot!

Every guidebook seems to talk about delicous Malta bread. Can anyone tell me, is there rye in typical Malta bread? I found one recepie on net, and it didn´t have rye. I love good bread, but i´, allergic to rye. That´s why I ask.
Hello, I'm going to be taking a trip to Malta and don't want to rent a car, I was wondering if anyone has experience with the horse drawn carriages and if they take you on tours? I know I have heard many very bad situations about these horses, the fact that they have no shelter in the sweltering heat, no water, nothing to make them more comfortable, they are basically not treated well at all, if this is the case I sure as heck do not want to use this as a form of transportation or tourist enjoyment. Does anyone have any experience with this and alternatives for tourists to enjoy getting around Valletta when the weather is extremely hot.
We will be staying in Valletta, in Triq San Pawl in a self-catering apartmant. We will arrive late afternoon. Is there any possibility to do some basic shopping (water, fruit, milk, bread, etc.) nearby for breakfast after 8 p.m.? Or a good bakery which is open early in the morning? Any restaurants for a light dinner? Thanks.
Greetings from the USA, My wife and I will be visiting Malta hopefully in September. We have rented an apartment in Mellieha for 9 nights. It seems that Mellieha is a nice area and also right near where the most popular beaches on the island are. The apartment is located at: Sandy Beach, No 10, Triq il- Marlozz, Mellieha Bay. They tell us it is close to the bus stop and that the town itself is very close along with the beach area. Is anyone familiar with the area that the apartment is located in? The lady who owns the apartment told us that it is very easy to make 1/2 day or full day trips from the apartment to anywhere on the island, that the bus stop was very close to go most anywhere. Any suggestions as where to go for 1/2 day or full day trips other than to Valletta which we plan on going to at least for 1 day. What is the weather like there in September? We will be going the 1st part of September. If possible, we would like to meet local VTer's who live in Malta while we are there. If you are a local and would like to meet up while we are there, please send us an e-mail. That is all we can think of for now .... Happy Travels, Al and Mary / USA
