Valletta Harbor Cruise

Valletta Harbor Cruise

With a harbor cruise you get a beautiful insight into the capital of Malta, Valletta, with its enormous fortifications as well as the hidden angles and heavenly shores of the harbor. During the harbor cruise a guide explains the history and different parts of the harbor and the buildings around.

The cruise takes between 1.30 hours and 2.30 hours. It starts and ends in Sliema. One can find many stalls on the promenade selling cruises to the tourists. But you also can book it in every travel agency on the island.
The price for the cruise is normally €17 for adults and €11 for children under 12 years.
*Prices may vary and should only give an indication of the price level
Description of the harbor cruise: All the 9 bays of the two natural harbors - Grand Harbor and Marsamxetto - are toured to. Astonishing are the huge fortifications which were the only protection against intruders in the past. A highlight are the ‘three cities‘: Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua.

Winter in Malta

Malta is often described as a nice summer-country with sunshine, beaches and blue sky. However there is another side of Malta - the winter. For the first time you will feel winter coming in December and you have to endure it till February/March. January is the darkest and possibly coldest month in the year/winter. This month has the rainiest days, the least sunshine-hours and the lowest temperatures.

How is winter in Malta?

There is no frost or snow but mostly strong rain showers and winds. That’s not even so bad, but there are some other factors which make this worse.

Cottonera (Three Cities) - the ‘three cities‘: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea

The word Cottonera describes the three cities: Vittoriosa (Birgu), Senglea (L‘Isla) and Cospicua (Bormla). The peninsula in the middle, Vittoriosa, was the only peninsula of the three peninsulas which was inhabited at the arrival of the Knights of St. John. In the past the city was called ‘Borgo del Castello‘. That‘s where the name Birgu comes from. Valletta didn‘t exist at that time.

Sights in Marsaxlokk

In Marsaxlokk there isn’t much to see. The city has a nice bay, full of colorful traditional Maltese boats, also known as Dghajjes- or Luzzu-boats. The attraction #1 is the market. In the centre is a beautiful big church surrounded by old houses. Not far away from Marsaxlokk in the south lies the Fort St. Lucian. North-eastwards are an old church and the temples of Tas-Silg.
