1. Re: I'm in Panic !!! i just have only 4 days in Malta and ...

That`s a lot of places to try and see in four days. To do these you will be rushing from place to place and not seeing anything.

Spend a day in Valletta visiting St Johns Co -- Cathederal, spend some time in the Upper Barrakka Gardens enjoying the view over a coffee of beer and then stroll down to Fort St Elmo to see the War Museum.

Take a little walk round the narrow streets and stop for some food and drink

This will be enough for one day

Spend the next day in Mdina and Rabat seeing the cathederal and one of the catacomb.

Drive up to Dingli cliffs ,spend a little time there and have a drive along the coast road.

Gozo next day --- Azure window, Xlendi. Have a nice drive round some of the small villages like Gharb and then Ta Pinu.

Ghagantija if you have time

Fourth day . Go to Vittoriosa and the Three Cities

In the afternoon drive to Mosta to see the dome and then on to Golden Bay for a coffee by the sea.

That is a more realistic four day itinerary.

Don`t try to bo too much or you will not enjoy it.

Have a good time.

Graham.

Im with Graham on this one I was wondering when you were going to stop and enjoy yourself your not practising for a tour guide and the good thing is you can come back again.

There is a Top Question (second one) about a day in Valletta.

Where are you staying and when are you coming ?

If you tell us where we could help more.

For example it might be possible to stop at Mosta on the way to Rabat/Mdina.

And congratulations - you've done quite a bit of research.

Hello :)

After reading your posts I’ve changed (again) my plan.

I’ve also decided that I’ll rent the car for all my stay in Malta so I can traveler faster.

At this moment I only have 1 night in St Julian's (the last one) and I was thinking to be 2 nights in Mdina or Rabat and the other 2 around Valletta despite everything is so close…the nights in Mdina is just because I read that it’s very cool by night but … decisions … decisions … almost everyone says that I should be in just one place and from there travel around the island…my girlfriend is “working hard” to find a really nice (and cheap) place for the other nights. (The last night will be at Hotel Juliani but it’s expensive to have more nights over there).

So … it’s spitted in 4 days but I still don’t know how it will be arranged:

Day Valletta & 3 cities:

Audio Guide at National Museum of Archaeology

Merchant Street Market

Valletta churches

Fort Sr Elmo

Upper Barrakka Gardens

Natural Harbour

"3 churches in the 3 Cities

(Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua)"

Fort St Angelo

Mdina Day

Audio Guide Medina

Mdina Cathedral

St Paul's Catacombs or St Agatha's Catacombs

Mosta Dome

Ta'Qali crafts village

Ghajn Tuffieha

Dingli Cliffs

Gozo Day

Gozo 360

The Cathedral

The Azure Window

The Inland Sea

Ta' Pinu Basilica

Ġgantija

Ramla Bay

The other Day

(Hypogeum) - if we get tickets :P

Blue Grotto

Ħagar Qim

Mnajdra

Marsaxlokk

Stay in one place, you're going to waste time packing and unpacking, checking in and checking out. Malta is small and you don't need to stay in different places.

Enjoy your holiday, slow down, it's impossible to see everything in 4 days - you can always come back another time. If you rush and pack too much in you won't enjoy it and you will definitely NOT relax
