    • Walking in Malta

      Malta Dec 30, 2016 at 9:50 AM

      I'm thinking about planning a trip to Malta and Gozo. We enjoy hiking and walking, so I'm contemplating walking the coastal trails (or part of the trails) on both islands. Has anyone done this type of trip independently? I've found several travel agencies that provide maps, hotels and luggage transport, which is appealing, but I'd prefer to plan and book everything myself. Is there a service on Malta or Gozo that will transport luggage from hotel to hotel so the visitor can walk?

    • One morning and one afternoon in Malta

      Malta Oct 24, 2016 at 8:41 AM

      Hello everyone. I will be coming to Malta for a conference and it seems that I will have one morning free (from 9am-1pm) and one afternoon (after 4pm). I will be staying in Valetta.

      Do you believe there is any point of trying to visit Mdina (by bus) during the morning and seeing Valetta in the afternoon? It seems to take around 30' by bus to get from Valetta to Mdina, so that leaves around 2,5 h to explore the town. Is it enough to see the main attractions or should I not even bother and leave for another time (if any)?

      And one more thing: any good tips on budget restaurants at Valetta (or at Il--Furjana etc)?
      Thank you all!

      Best place to stay

      Malta Sep 22, 2016 at 9:35 AM

      I am visiting Malta on next November for 4 nights, which do you think is the best area to stay?
      I would use public transport and so I need to be well based fro that. Also I would love a bit of night life.
      Wondering about a day trip to Gozo too.
      If have any highlights about what I should not miss, it will be a great help.

      Is it November still a good time of the year to visit Malta?

      Malta Sep 20, 2016 at 5:57 AM

      Hi everyone! Wanna take a 4 days off next November. I was wondering about going to Malta,that seems to be perfect destination for is trip: I would be solo travel and I'm looking for relax and chill, I would love to find myself into an island atmosphere rather than a big city life this time. In particular, I love sea, sunset, natural landscapes, port and fishing village. I am not really too worried about laying on the beach ( that of course I love , but do not expect it in November) Yes, some nightlife is appreciated. I am a bit concerned about weather: do you think November will still make the trip worth? Or should I save Malta as destination maybe for next summer? If coming next November, which would be best places to go and activities to do? Thank you so much in advance Happy travel Dadi

      I know this is probably a long shot and most definitely my last chance. Would anyone know where i could hire any mode of transport for a couple of days from tomorrow 10th Aug or 11th Aug. I have tried many hire places and people that I know and have met along the way over the past week but to no avail!! Any kind of being pointed in the right direction would be much appreciated.

      Meeting new friends

      Valletta May 11, 2016 at 5:19 PM

      Good day,
      My friend and I will be visiting Valetta from 23/10/2016 to 28/10/2016 for our company conference, We will have some free time at our disposal during our stay here and would like to meet with locals as we are interested to know and learn about the Maltese culture. I have visited Valetta for 1 day, at the end of March this year during my cruise on MSC Preziosa and fell in love with the place. It is absolutely beautiful. We are both single females, cultured, educated and would prefer to meet with matured people who would be interested to meet with us and teach us the locals way of life. We will pay our own expenses . We will be staying at the Westin Dragonara Resort. I think it is in a area called St. Julian's. Thank you

      Is it easy with the local transportation to explore it? and go to Gozo and Korino as well? Or do we have to rent ?
      And how much does it cost to rent a scooter or a car? Any good link for economic choices?
