    To Rabat by the Hop-on & off-bus

    To Rabat by the Hop-on & off-bus is one of the possibilities to go there. Buses are going each 30 min and for the full day you pay 15 euros. I took the very first bus, spent some time in the park of the presdident, 1 hour in the Aviation-museum,30 min in Mosta and 1,5 hour in Mdina, that was the maximum I could do in a single day. All the other places of the tour I stayed onboard and got back by the last bus in the evening.
    The seats on the lower floor of the bus are simply too hot, the ones on top are great, but sometimes you are hit by branches of trees and you need a cap that will not fly away in the winds.

    There is a small street-train for tourists showing you all the sights of Rabat, that might make sense for people, who have problems to walk or when they are in a hurry and this train is ready to go. The streettrain starts next to the "Greek Gate " of Mdina, in the Howard Gardens, thats the park, where also the local buses, the hop-on&off-buses and the minibuses load and unload their passangers.

    Take the local bus to Rabat & Mdina

    Take Bus 80 or 81 from Valetta
    or bus 65 from Sliema to Rabat & MdinaThe system of buses all over Malta is really quite perfect in many ways although their buses are mostly outdated and without any modern comfort. Mostly the buses dont have a door at all, or the door is fixed to stand open and it is not unusual to see people jumping in or out while the bus is stoping at a traficlight.
    You can use a button to tell the driver that you want to get out at the next official stop and in some of the older buses you have a string to pull and that string rings a bell for the driver, thats funny.
    Mostly you pay just 47 cents for a single ride p.p. and some drivers charge extra for your luggage, some dont, and in any case you have to take your luggage inside the bus yourself. Even in the airportbus you have to take your luggage into the bus, place it on the seats or what-ever !

    Its easy to reach Rabat by local bus. Here's the options depending on where you are coming from :
    Bus 80, 81(Dingli) from/to Valletta
    Bus 83 from/to Bugibba
    Bus 65 from/to Sliema
    Keep hold of your ticket - inspectors check them regularly.

    old buses

    Take the old buses to go to RABAT . We have lodged in the Hilton Malta a short distance from La Valetta , so we first go to the VALETTA Bus Station and further to RABAT . REMARK : MDINA is only 5 minutes by walking away from RABAT !!!!!!!!

    By bus, which seemed to me outfashioned and ancient! It is notable how you have to warn a driver that you are going to get out: there is a string over the ceiling of the bus ending with a small bell above the driver. You pull the string from your place, the bell rings and the driver stops the bus at the next stop. :-))
    On foot.
