    • Transport from Nice to Malta (Valletta?)

      Malta Mar 30, 2014 at 10:23 AM

      I have been looking for fast and reasonable transport from the Nice airport to Valletta, without success. The few flights I find all go via a connecting city, most often in the wrong direction. A round trip seems to run upwards of 300 Euros. I tought that perhaps there might also be a high-speed ferry alternative, but again, find nothing.

      We are thinking of taking a 3 day break there in mid or late May. All suggestions are welcome.

    • Best (most central?) location to be on Malta?

      Malta Mar 30, 2014 at 11:03 AM

      We are thinking of a 3 or 4 day excursion to Malta in late May. There are a number of islands, etc. We don't want to move every day. How easy is it to go from one to the other by ferry for a day-trip? All suggestions are welcome, including hotels. We will consider upscale as long as its worth the experience.

      Thanks.

      Malta in almost full week

      Malta Apr 13, 2014 at 2:39 AM

      Hello ;)

      I booked flights to Malta for second part of May. It would be nice to know what are the basic places to visit in Malta during 7 days. Priorities are sightseeing, also some time being in beach and probably clubbing at least one evening ;)

      As I understood, Valletta could be the best place to stay because of transportation? What weather to expect in second part of May?

      As for know I believe Valletta sightseeing could be at least for one day and also full daytrip to Gozo ;)

      Thanks for help,
      Greetings

      Just wonderingif might be better
      just to go B&B, and enjoy wider menu choice outside
      The hotel if anyone knows immediate area & hotel?

      Also, I read an older answer stating there was an IMAX screen
      on the island, does anyone know if this still exists & perhaps located
      Close by?

      Final Q's! We are goingbin September, can anyone recommend
      A watersports place thst offers jet ski & scuba?

      If you know this location, is there anywhere that offers yoga?

      Thanks so much for taking the time

    • bubibba hotel then fortina hotel

      Malta Feb 24, 2014 at 11:08 AM

      Hi there,
      Grateful for your views
      In Sept we plan to stay 4 nights in bugibba hotel then 5 in fortina hotel.
      We want to be close to scubadive opportunities which a previous post confirms sliema is.
      I thought breaking up the holiday staying at two locations would give two different experiences.
      I am looking interested and in yoga while there, is it was widely offered?
      I was a thinking also of a one night stay possibly two in gozo.

      Would this be too many stays in a location that is quite small anyway?
      Grateful for any responses
      Thanks

      Senglea Jan 19, 2014 at 12:48 AM

      Hi, we are four adults travelling to Malta in June this year. We have been looking at waterfront apartments in Senglea and Vittoriosa / Birgu. Not having ever been to Malta can anyone give advise on whether this areas are a good choice. We are all over 50, intend to drive and see all of the island, we like to sit on a balcony with a glass of wine in the evening but also eat out in reasonably price restaurants. As we like to walk to bars in the evenings we would like some advice on whether these areas are safe to walk around in the evenings. Thanking you in advance for any advice.

      Malta in May!!

      Malta Jan 10, 2014 at 1:31 AM

      Okay, so I'm going to Malta, for the first time ever! and there is the possibility that I'll be going alone D:
      Is it expensive to eat out? I'm going for 10 days how much spending money should I take?
      I plan on going on the blue lagoon boat to gozo and comino - Has anyone been on the full day trip and is it worth the 50 euros?
      What is accepted as ID in Malta - apart from your passport (I don't really wanna take this around with me all day every day)
      Is there any must see sights? I'll be 18, I like a bit of sight seeing and history.
      Is there a safe path to walk the length (or width) of the island? If so where could I get a map from?
      Is the bus services reliable? I live in England where the buses don't show up half the time..
      I plan on staying in the Blue Sea San Anton hotel and apartment in Bugibba - has anyone stayed here before? or can recommend a nicer cheapish hotel?

      Hi
      We are spending 1 week in Malta in April and would like to stay close to everything, we want to go outside the hotel and then there´s shops, cafe´s bar´s restaurants. We are not afraid of a little noise and we are not there to lie by the pool or on the beach (guess it´s also too early in april) we want to be in the middle of everything. So what do we choose Sliema or Valletta and which area of either Slieam or Valletta?

      Is 7 days too much?

      Malta Dec 5, 2013 at 7:48 AM

      Hello,

      I consider a trip to Malta in February. It is only possible from Sunday to Sunday. I have an idea of renting a bike. Assuming 40-60km per day (because it will be enough for my wife ;-). I believe that 2 days in Malta and 1 day in Gozo will allow me to see most of the islands. We don't like to stay at one place in the evening as well. I count one additonal day for seeing something extra like Valletta and Hal Saflieni Hypogeum. It gives me only four days in total. I'm afraid that seven days is a bit too much. Let me know that I'm wrong please ;-)

      The sea can be slightly too cold for swimming/snorkeling  in February, can it?

      Is that right that there is a high chance for long lasting heavy rain days in February, which can spoil a bike trip idea at all?

      I don't mind traffic much as I'm from a country well known for ruthless drivers  (hahaha).

      I will appreciate your answers.

      We hope to spend 3 weeks in Malta over Christmas and the New Year. Ideally in an aparthotel as we do not do breakfast and like to sometimes cook or eat out.
      How prepared should we be for meals over the holidays? Will supermarkets be closed at odd times? Do cafe's and restaurants close for family time? Do we need to book a Christmas meal out? I do not want us to have a miserable Christmas day with no wine and nice food !! Help !! Many thanks Alix (UK)

      Malta Nov 14, 2013 at 9:53 PM

      Hi All

      I will be visiting malta from the 15th to the 18th of December. So far my itinerary is as follow

      15th of December arrive at 2:10 pm by the time I get to my accommodation in valletta it will probably be 4pm so I guess I am still in the time for the sunset? Where can I go to take some lovely pics of sunset Upper Barrakka Gardens perhaps? can i walk there or do i need a bus?

      Once it gets dark should i go to sliema or st pauls to have dinner?

      16th of December planning to book a gozo day tour which includes: Mgarr, Victoria citadel, Azur Window in Dwejra, Xlendi Bay and Ggantijja Temples

      17th of December planning to book a mdina day tour which includes: Mdina, Dingli cliffs, Mosta

      18th of December since my flight is at 6:15 pm I thought I would go to Marsaxlokk in the morning to take some lovely pictures (how can i get there quickly?) and then come back to valletta and explore the city on foot to take some more photos

      What do you think of this itinerary? have i missed out on anything important?

      Also could you recommend me a nice bakery in valletta where I can get good coffee and good quality baked goods or croissants for breakfast?

      Thanks

      Hi there

      I am having difficulties finding day tours departing from Valletta in winter. Why is that? I though that Malta with its mild winter weather would be a magnet for tourists so I would expect tourist companies to offer daily tours in winter

      If you know of any company which has winter day tours please let me know

      I would like to do a walking tour of valletta, visit vittoriosa and mdina and visit gozo
