Questions answered about visiting Valletta
Travel Tips from people who've been to Valletta
After a 7 days visit to Malta, I would not rate myself as the Malta expert, but here are my thoughts... Food & restaurants: domestic speciality - everything with rabbit, they don't put too much spices in the food and very little salt, I have eaten in a lot of places but in general I am far from impressed, comparing with Italian and Greek cousine. Best tips - "Pepe" (I think is the name of restaurant) in Pacevile and "Rafael" in Pacevile, there where couple nice one's in Vitoriosa but I didn't remember the name. Siesta is from 15h-19h, so a lot of places are closed for lunch. General impressions: A place for old people - if you are wondering where are the old people from your towm, don't worry they are in Malta. Hotels & accommodations: Hilton was a great experience, with a excellent view of a small harbour and open sea. You can rent an apartment for a month for 300-400eur, or even buy a one (fully furnished) for aprox 100k eur, but I recon it's not a good investment. There are a lot of apartments and restaurants out on sale which is not a surprise for me having in mind how other coasts in vicinity look like compering to Malta (Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, Turkey). Nightlife: If your idea of fun is drinking beer in Murphy's/Tod's/James's/... bar then there is night life. Sightseeing & Attractions: There are only couple of beaches which are crowded and small. In Comino which is a small island on the north there is something called a "blue lagune"a place that should be visited (deserving the name), in addition on Gozo (another island in north) there are couple of beaches (red sand) - nothing extra... Malta aqualand is small and old so it's a place not worth visiting. There are a lot of nice fortresses all over the place standing as a proof of the rich history.

Malta's lovely walled capital... the public gardens overlooking the sea offer incredible views on the Mediterranean, the National Archaelogical Museum is a must-see, and the cathedral is amazing... plenty of options to stay and eat ... and the coach station just outside the city gates can take you about anywhere in this pocket-sized country...
