We visited Malta and agreed for the horse drawn carriage to take us up to the Valetta bus station. 20 euros was agreed from the bottom harbour to the top. Half way up the driver said we had to walk the rest of the way,. We told him of our agreement and so he went a little further, stopped and told us we would have to walk. Malta needs more tourists and being treated like this has made us realise how these people can rip us off. Possible won't go to Malta again as the same thing happened with an ordinary taxi as well.
These offer traditional horse cab rides to the City and around Valletta. The service is available in the road adjacent right outside the Forni Terminal for cruise passengers and there is a "horse stand" in the centre of Republic Road. Prices are negotiable with the cab driver.
I have to admit that these horse & cart affairs look very attractive. The carriages are beautiful and the horses are lovely, and very mild mannered too. No idea how much it costs to see Valletta by Karrozzin, though I'd bet it's not especially cheap. Still, I think it would be a lovely way to see the city, and maybe we'll do it next time.
However, if you don't want to do this (and anyway, you want to see everything right up close) then just walk. The city is not very big, though going up and down the hills (if you choose the wrong route) might prove tiring.
This is very interesting way to sightsee Valletta. For only several Maltese liras (pounds) you will be able to enjoy Valletta in a very special way.
Like many cities full of tourists, also here in Valletta you can take the romantic horse carriage ride around the city.
In stead of walking you van take a ride with a horse drawn carriage. There are stops at the City Gate, Fort Elmo and some other major locations.
