    Eurochange Exchange Bureau in Paceville

    by Elly01 Written May 9, 2005

    Favorite thing: These are very important especially if you need to change cash and the banks are closed. There are two of these in St Julians one in St Georges Road (see other tip on St Julians section) and this one which is situated in Paceville at the side of the Bank of Valletta and opposite 'Going Places'

    Fondest memory: That you find everything here !

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Spinola Bay and Piccolo Padre was the setting and venue for a maltesse VT meet - it was so lovely to meet you all and sorry we didn't have more time to chat between mouthfuls of pasta and pizza...oh and not forgetting the cake!

    St Julians

    by sandysmith Updated Feb 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We arrived midday in Sliema, and having got rid of our bags in our room it was out to stretch our legs and to get our bearings...so off we went walking the promenade to St Julians, one of MAlta's bustling tourist resorts with its bays and nightlife in abundance. A pleasant stroll along the promenade, checking out some restaurants on the way for later that week.

    Peace Garden View

    by sandysmith Updated Feb 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walking from Sliema we passed the peace gardens - which certainly were that - very quiet and no-one playing here and no cats :-( Across the bay the blue tower of the Portomaso. business centre can be seen - some say a blot on the landscape...you make up your own mind on that. The Portomaso area has the swanky hotels, marina and caasino. Unfortunately we never got that far during our week...may be we will stay at he Hilton there the next time ;-)

    Backstreet Balconies

    by sandysmith Updated Feb 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Having walked the long coastal route to St Julians - about an hour ambling, it was late now anfg getting quite cool. We decided to walk the quick route back, cutting up by the square uin Balluta By across the back strrets to Sliema. This is much quicker of course (thankls for that tip Steve) about 15 minutes - well exactly it took us when I timed it another night. Another plus is that you get to see some typical maltese streets with the colourful balconies.

    Spinola Bay

    by sandysmith Updated Feb 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Spinola Bay, the next bay after Ballutta Bay from Sliema direction, was the nicest bay we found in St Julians - beside which it was where our favoutrite restaurants and cafes were located :-0. Colourful boats in the harbour surrounded a lively square.

    Love Sculpture

    by sandysmith Updated Feb 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The promenadde has some interesting sculptures. This one is not very popular with locals as it has not really worked - the two concrete blocks with the word LOVE is supposed to reflect in the water of Spinola Bay -even i couldn't capture it as intended!

    Ballutta Building Detail

    by sandysmith Written Feb 16, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The more you looked at the Ballutta building the more detail there is to be seen - its a shame it looked rather neglected but I think it is the subject of investment potential - would make for great apartments or a luxury hotel.

    Ballutta Bay

    by sandysmith Updated Feb 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Ballutta Bay was the first bay we arrived at in St Julians after our promenade walk from Sliema. Its found just after the peace gardens which were very quiet in teh winter time - look quite desserted looking down onto it. There was a large open air swimming pool and every time we passed there were swimmers in - day or night, even when it was quite cold, reckoned it must have been a swimming club.
    There is a lovely art deco building here - Ballutta building that took up most of one side of the square by the bay.

Here you can also buy an ICM calling card to call your family back in your country. You can also buy local phone cards that is Go mobile or Vodafone cards - if you have a local number.

    Where to make an overseas phonecall

    by Elly01 Written Sep 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Around Malta and Gozo one can find phone booths to call your relatives and family. However, in St. Julians you can find phone booths just opposite Wembley taxi services, some down in Spinola Bay, one in Qaliet Street just round the corner from HSBC Bank, one outside Pizza Hut and then in Paceville there is Maltacom where you will find loads next to eachother. You can either bu a phone card or you can use coins.

    Fondest memory: n/a

    Fondest memory: Some of the balconies had just plain supports but I noticed a few - like this in the pic - had some really ornate interesting decotrative motifs.
