Valletta Self Guided Walking Tour

Valletta Self Guided Walking Tour, Valletta, Malta (B)

Explore the capital city of Malta with our self-guided Valletta walking tour. It’s an easy and free way to explore if you have just one day in Valletta.

This Valletta city tour starts just outside the main gates but you can join it at any point along the circular route. Use our free Valletta walking tour map to help you navigate around the streets and alleyways of the historic capital of Malta. If you don’t fancy the self-guided version, why not book onto a guided tour of Valletta with a friendly local?

We start our tour at the impressive Triton Fountain. Three grand bronze Tritons holding a huge basin of water above their heads stand proudly outside the main gates of Malta’s capital. The original statue, due to structural errors, collapsed in 1978. But thanks to the local artist and restorator, Kenneth Cauchi, the fountain was dismantled into 54 pieces and then brought back to life as an elaborate piece of art.

It was refurbished just in time to celebrate Valletta’s stint as European Capital of Culture in 2018 and is a popular spot to hang out at any time of the day or night. It’s located right next to the main Valletta bus terminal and taxi rank if you are taking public transport. Anyone driving can use the main MCP underground car park just outside the city walls on St Anne Street, Floriana. Postcode for satnav: FRN 1460. ......
