this long and narrow street begins with wine bars and restaurants ,but ends with buildings and shops more than hundred years old crumble and locked on rusty locks. it's a shame,somebody should invest to renew this part of the street.

Strait Street is the heart of Valletta. No visit to Malta is complete without a stroll down through this vibrant neighborhood.

Walking shoes and a lot of time needed to see all of Valletta. Very interesting if your into history and the Mediterranean lifestyle of years gone by.

We stayed in an apartment in Strait st, which meant everything was just a short walk away. Quality restaurants , only minutes away, and great well maintained architecture all around you.

As with so much of Valletta, worth a stroll down with plenty of things to do just off the street. I found the view of the street from the steeper end down as being a fascinating view.

Interesting stree to walk down - on our way back from The Malta Experience. Steep in places with steps. Side streets off it with cafes etc. Got a good feel of the city. Felt very safe walking around.
