  • Newly built EU-funded project. Modern, fast. Takes you from Valletta down to the seafront. Going down is free, going up costs 1 Eur (or take stairs for free, which is a fun exercise).
  • Easy to use,fast and cheap. You can go downstairs for free and up for the cost of 1€. For some reason nothing worked that day I guess so I got to travel both up and down for free
  • Get your camera out but be quick
  • Fast and free from Upper Barrakka Gardens to sea side level with ferry boats and hop on, hop off buses.
  • You have to pay for going up. Going down is free. The view is breathtaking.

Where to stay in Valletta

The small city of Valetta offers fewer lodging options than some of Malta's larger cities, but accommodations include everything from upscale hotels to less-expensive guesthouses. Stay in the city center at one of several old-fashioned hotels to be in close proximity to sights like St. Johns Co-Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, multiple museums, and a wide variety of restaurants. One fun option involves renting traditional Valletta houses that have been converted into rental properties and date back to the time of the Knights of Malta. Smaller bed and breakfasts are dispersed throughout the city. Book well in advance to avoid high prices.
