November visit

We are coming to Malta 7th November for one week, looking for nice location with shops & restaurants on hand , happy to walk around and then take buses to explore island, we have seen lovely apartment in Senglea but slightly concerned it could be too quiet and remote or another in Valetta - any tips on location or other areas we should consider welcome

Senglea is quiet but not remote. You can get a ferry to Valletta. The journey takes about 5 minutes. And across the creek is Vittoriosa which is very well worth seeing. There are regular buses from Senglea to Valletta and Marsascalla. Of course you can get to anywhere on the island from Valletta. There are a number of restaurants in Senglea and Vittoriosa.

Shops wise other than grocery stores and other basic daily life type shops there's nothing of interest in the 3 Cities. Obviously Valletta has more to offer in that department as do Sliema and St Julians but of course Valletta and the 3 Cities offer a more authentic Maltese experience.

Senglea is really non-touristic with limited dining opportunities. Vittoriosa would offer all of that and would be a 25-30 minute walk around the harbour. If it was me, I would opt for a more central location such as Valletta itself or indeed Sliema or St. Julians.

If you enjoy surrounding yourself with history and architecture, you would have to go for Senglea or Valletta. Sliema & St. Julians offer far more in the way of eateries and have a lovely promenade but they are very modern on the eye!.

A group of us are coming in November for a short break and decided on Valetta as there is so much to see there and it is a transport hub. Looking forward to it.
