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.

Ferry to and from Malta

One can reach Gozo easily from Malta with the ferry. There are two operating routes from Malta to Gozo. The first and most commonly used is from Cirkewwa (Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo) and the second is from Sa Maison (near Valletta/Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo). Both routes are operated by the enterprise: Gozo Channel Ltd. The routes operate once per hour and the crossing lasts only 20 - 30 minutes.

Valletta

Valletta, probably the best spot with the most shops and malls to go shopping. The main street (Republic Street) is full of shops, especially jewelers. You must visit this street. The main road is full of people between 8am to 12am and again from 4pm till 7 pm. The so called Siesta takes place from 12am till 4pm.
