We are traveling to Malta this August, arriving on a Thursday in the late afternoon from Virtu Ferry and leaving on the Sunday on the evening ferry.
Neither my husband or I want to drive, therefore we were thinking of either taking the public transport or the hop-on hop off, therefore my first question would be, what area should we be staying in for easy access? We booked a really nice hotel beside the San Anton's garden (refundable), but now are wondering if it's the most practical area, and if maybe we should be staying in Valletta instead... any suggestions? Is there an easy way to get from the waterfront to San Anton's Garden?
And secondly, here is the itinerary we were thinking, we have never been there, therefore suggestions are most welcome, keeping in mind that we won't be driving:
Thursday: arrive in late afternoon from ferry, get to hotel (??), than stroll around Attard and go to the gardens.
Friday: Marsaxlokk (hop-on, hop-off? or city bus?)
Saturday: Mdina (easy bus from the San Anton's garden to Mdina? and is it enough for a day tour or should we add more?)
Sunday: Check out and go to Valletta & visit for the day (maybe find a place where we can leave our bag for the day?) leave in the evening by ferry
thank you!! :)
