1. Hop - on Hop - off Buses

City Sightseeing and Malta Sightseeing, known as “hop – on and hop –off” buses run tours around the Maltese islands, according to their predefined routes.

Sightseeing buses in Malta are a fun and easy way to see much of Malta’s culture, prehistoric temples and grand palaces await! These double-decker tours also operate services around Malta’s sister island Gozo, visiting in total, around 40 different places of interest. Onboard you can also listen to an audio commentary in on the 16 languages available, through your personal, single use headphone! Especially useful if you only have an afternoon to sightsee as they might be more convenient than the local public transport.   

Any of the Hop-on Hop-off Malta tours can be combined with a harbour cruise, such as the one around Marsamxett Harbour.

2. Ferries

A ferry service runs from Sliema to the nation’s capital, Valletta. This ferry can be found in the same place as the hop-on hop –off buses, 10 minutes from the Preluna and 1926 hotels, but a little further from the Plaza Regency hotel, taking around 20 minutes.   


Crossing the Marsamxett harbour is a picturesque ride, with attractive views from every angle. You’ll be able to see a stunning panoramic view of Valletta with the Church of our Lady of Mount Carmel rising above the skyline. Fort Manoel on Manoel island can also be seen on this crossing.  


Valletta was completed in 1566 and boasts a variety of architecture, most notably Spanish Baroque, which was the style favoured by the Knights of St. John at the time.   


After visiting the capital, you can then take another ferry from the same service to the Three Cities of Cottenera. The architecture and history here is even older than that of Valletta.   The Three Cities are comprised of Birgu, Senglea and Bormla, they were fortified in the 15th and 16th Centuries, with Birgu serving as the capital of Malta until Valletta’s completion, subsequent to the Great Siege of Malta.
