Valleta - What to See in Malta's Golden Capital?, Valletta, Malta (B)

Valletta is one of the smallest capitals in one of the tiniest countries in the world. Located on a dry, golden island of Malta, south of Sicily, Valletta will most probably be your gateway to the rest of the country. Although most of the tourists stay at the coast near the popular beaches (which, besides the Blue Lagoon, pretty much disappointed me), it's good to know the historical capital of Malta and see the unique, golden buildings, streets and architecture in Valletta. The city is also the main hub for all public buses - they are cheap and you can use them as an easy way to travel around Malta.

Valletta International Airport receives many flights from all over Europe. As a popular beach destination, many budget airlines fly here. From the airport, you can take a bus which is very cheap or a taxi (around 15 EUR). The ride will take around 30 minutes to Valletta city center. By bus, it can take twice as much. You can find the timetable and info about buses here. You must keep in mind that the bus network, although very well developed, can be unreliable. Sometimes the buses don't come at all.
