Malta in winters

We visited Malta in winter. Water activities are not possible in winter, so, this post will tell you what else there is to do in Malta.

If you have only one day then go to Mdina. If you have two days, then do Gozo as well. If you have three days, then do the old temples. And if you have four days then do Valetta as well.

  1. The island has excellent public transport that you can count on. 1.5 Euro one-way ticket valid for a 2-hours journey in any direction.
  2. I would recommend staying in Sliema or St. Julian’s for maximum comfort. If you want a Mediterranean-style stay then go to Valetta or Mdina instead.
  3. The Tallinja app gives better suggestions than Google Maps regarding intra-island public transport.

Then this guy steps into the shop.
