    On Foot

    Maybe you don't have your accommodation in Valleta but in another place, so first, how to get there? Check my Malta (island) tips on transportation/buses.

    All the buses stop around the Triton Fountain (pic), a few meters before the City Gate, the main entrance of the city.

    Once you arrive in Valletta, forget about buses, you only need a good pair of shoes because everything is within walking distance, the city is not big, just 900 by 630 metres.

    Mini CT Cabs

    I just read about these little electric cabs today but haven't seen or used any of them myself yet. Apparently they started on 25th June 2007 and can carry passengers from CT stands within Valletta to destinations in the City itself.

    Passengers can either board a CT Cab from the CT Cab stands or call for a cab using the telephone numbers below. They can also be boarded from any part of Valletta if the cab has seats available. The cab can take up to three passengers.

    The cost of a one-way trip in the centre of Valletta (Zone A) is 45 Malta cents for the first passenger and 10 cents for any additional passenger. A one-way trip in the City exterior boundary (Zone B) costs 90 cents for the first passenger and 20 cents for any additional passenger.

    The service operates every day, including public holidays, from 7 am to 8 pm, but a night service is also available upon request by phone.

    AIR: There is a helicopter service operating all year round between Malta and Gozo. A quick alternative to the ferry service, it runs eight times a day and takes only ten to fifteen minutes.

    SEA: A passenger car ferry operates several times daily between Cirkewwa in Malta and Mgarr in Gozo, with connections to Comino. Crossing time is about 30 minutes. Services to Comino operate from mid-March to mid-November. For further information, contact the Gozo Channel Company, Hay Wharf, Sa Maison in Malta.
    Driving is on the left. Speed limit is 64kph (40mph) on highways and 40kph (25mph) in residential areas. Bus: Good local services operate from Luqa, Valletta, Sa Maison and Victoria (Gozo) to all towns. Taxi: Identifiable by their all-white livery. Although taxis are under meter charge at government-controlled prices, it is best to agree prices before departure. Car hire: A number of car hire firms offer self-drive cars. Both Hertz and Avis have desks at the airport. Rates on Malta are among the cheapest in Europe. Documentation: Valid international driving licence required.
