This is almost certainly The Last Post About Malta. I just want to sum up.
I was very nervous about going on holiday but actually for the most part I enjoyed myself and didn’t run into any trouble.
Overall I liked
. The weather was just right, not hot but not cold. I didn’t have trouble eating. Everyone is bilingual English so it’s easy to communicate. The bus service is excellent. It felt safe. Malta
So if you happen to find yourself jetting off to
Casa Rocca Piccola (€9.00) in
to see lots of historical curios and an air raid shelter; lots of variety here and a good tour. Good if you like history and stately homes. Tours are on the hour. Valletta
The Roman Domus (€6.00) in
for Roman artefacts; a well-labelled museum with some wonderfully preserved pieces. Good if you like history and museums. Rabat
The Malta At War Museum (€8.00) in Vittoriosa/Birgu for the underground air raid tunnels. Museum itself isn’t great, apart from the genuine WWII film, but the tunnels are a must see for anyone with the slightest interest in the war, or who just wants to get a bit creeped out.
National War Museum (€6.00) in Valletta to see World War II artefacts including Faith, one of four old biplanes that protected , and the George Cross awarded to the entire island for bravery. For WWII history buffs, only worth it if you really enjoy museums, but there is a lot packed in to a small space. Malta
Prince Alfred’s Courtyard of The Grand Master’s Palace (free) in
to see the huge stone lions hiding behind the trees. It’ll only take a minute, but it’s quite atmospheric. Valletta
