Prices in Malta

Prices in Malta

The cost of living is comparably average. Approximately 2/3 of the products consumed have to be imported from abroad. Unfortunately, the small market allows many monopolies to emerge.

There are three kinds of supermarkets in Malta

1. Snack Bars and small shops- open from 7am - 7pm (some even 24h). These shops are very expensive, but have also a good location.

2. Small supermarkets - these small supermarkets are located in residential areas. They usually open from 7am - 7pm. The prices are 10-20% more expensive then in the big supermarkets.

3. Huge Supermarkets - They are not as big as Wall-Mart/Carrefour stores in Germany, England, France, etc. but for Maltese relations they are huge. The range of goods is large and the prices are good.

Attention: There are special shops which offer only one kind of products like frozen food (Miracle Food) or farms.

During the week there are numerous vendors with small trucks in the streets in the residential areas. They sell fruits and vegetables at good prices - however these prices are not written down and tourists are often cheated.

National Holidays and Feasts in Malta

Most religious holidays are celebrated as traditional feasts. The following you will find a list of all holidays/feasts in Malta & Gozo.

Carnival in Malta

Carnivals in Malta, as we know them now, were first organized shortly after the Knights of St John came to the Island in 1535. The first that really broke out into the general jollification was probably the Carnival of 1560, when a massed Christian Armada was harbour-bound in Malta before sailing to Tripoli.

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.
