Ferry connection Sliema-Valletta | Valletta-Sliema

You can’t really believe it but there is a ferry connection between Valletta and Sliema. The transfer takes 5 minutes and starts every 30 minutes or hour - depending on the season.

Marsascala

Marsascala lies south-east of Malta and resembles the sight of St.Julians, or vice versa. Marsascala has a nice, deep inland going bay. The bay is surrounded with a promenade. Unfortunately, the city isn’t a good starting point to discover Malta, because of its bad location and infrastructure.

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

There is so much to see in Vittoriosa - the whole city is an open-air museum. The city is surrounded by an incredible flair of history, culture and modernity. The structure of the city equals that of a triangle. On the side facing to the inland there is a big city-wall with two gates. The most interesting way to enter the city is through the Couvre Porte. The side directed to the harbor entrance is also fortified. On the fortification, high above the sea, there is a nice promenade. From there you have a nice view on Valletta, the harbor gate and Kalkara. On the tip of the city is the Fort St. Angelo. The fort is stunning. The last side of the triangle, the side facing the Dockyard Creek/Senglea, has no fortification. There you can find the Casino de Venezia, Maritime Museum, St. Lawrence Church and a luxury hotel. In the city itself something is awaiting you around every corner. In the centre lies the Victory-Square - the square got his name after the Great Siege 1565 of the Turkish. It is said that the Grandmaster La Vallette was wounded during the siege on a fight at the fortification ’Poste de Castille’. The Turkish were already inside the city when the Grandmaster counterattacked them together with his personal body-guards.
