City tours, excursions and tickets in Valletta and surroundings
Malta - moving around the country
In general, tourists in Malta do not encounter any difficulties with regards to transportation. The most popular type of public transportation are buses. They (buses) usually run frequently and practically all trips connect certain regions with the capital of the republic. There are buses from 5.30 to 23.00. Over-night trips operate only from Friday to Monday and with long interval. Tickets are usually purchased directly from the driver. The bus services work worse in areas which are far from tourist centers; the transport can run only two or three times a day. An alternative to it, in this case, are horse-drawn carriages. This is not the most comfortable form of transport, but it is however much cheaper.
