The only public transport vehicle is the BUS

The only public transport vehicle is the BUS

The bus-system is very easy to understand. A bus always goes two ways, either to Valletta or from Valletta away. In front of the gate of Valletta there is a huge roundabout - that’s the main bus-terminus in Malta. Some buses are also directly linking two cities between the north and south, but most of the buses are stopping in Valletta.

Malta is divided in 3 zones. Zone A is the southern part of Malta, Zone B the centre-north and Zone C the very far north. A bus-ticket costs €0.43 in Zone A, no matter if you are going for only one stop or 20. In Zone B it will cost you €0.50 and for Zone C it will cost you €0.60. One day ticket costs around €3.50. A three day ticket costs around €9. A five day ticket costs around €12, Seven day ticket at €14, there are also some direct route buses which go straight from one zone to another without stopping in bus stops at a cost of around €1.20. Altogether the prices are very reasonable, however most of the buses are very old and often very crowded, especially in the summer. It can happen that the bus doesn’t stop for you, because it is too full although this is not really a problem (unless you are in a hurry) since usually a bus passes every 10-15mins ore more often. It is important that you should lift your hand if you see the bus coming, otherwise it won’t stop. Meanwhile there are also some new and modern busses.

A funny fact: To find the ’stop-button’ in the bus is not as easy as it sounds. Some busses use strings which you have to pull, others stripes on which you have to press, in some buses you will think that they are making fun of you because there are so many buttons above and you don’t know which one you have to press. The best thing is, when you finally find the right button, it might not work.

Tip: Just have a look at other people in the bus or ask somebody for help - people in Malta are very friendly and helpful.

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

The whole city of Mdina is worth seeing. The city consists of many small alleys, a huge city wall with three gates, a very nice cathedral (from inside as well as outside), an observation platform (from there you have a nice view over the northern part of Malta), and much, much more. Rabat whereas is a modern city. There are also some nice sights, as the St. Paul’s Church and Grotto, the Museum of Roman Antiquities and the St. Paul’s Catacombs. While Rabat is a bit more vital, Mdina offers more culture and history. Have fun looking through the pages.

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta. Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars.
