Island of Malta
A few days ago, I visited Malta for business purposes. Anyway I had time to visit the two main cities of the principal island: Valetta and Mdina (and its suburb Rabat). Rabat means suburb in Arabic world. I also had time to try its main specialties: octopus and rabbit, although the dishes I got are not the most traditional ones.
The best way to visit Valetta is going there by urban bus (€0,47). I recommend staying at a hotel at St Julian’s or Silema, at the seaside. If you want to visit the island, you can take a tour bus to the North, to visit that part including the beautiful city of Mdina. There is another tour to the South and you will have the opportunity to see Valetta and the surroundings. Anyway, if you have already visited Valetta, better take the North one.
Another tour day can be dedicated to the Gozo and Comino islands. For me it will be next time. Ferries departs from Silema.
I have to say that both the rabbit and the octopus were fantastic!. I enjoyed it at the sea side, at Silema beach.
The buses are uncovered. You can see everything. By the way, the girl was not only pretty, but very interesting.
The Mdina streets were empty at 10 o’clock in the morning
