Itinerary help

We will be stopping for the 2nd time by cruise ship to Valletta in June and will be docked from 8:30am-10pm. We want to tour the Hypogeum, in addtion to seeing Mdina. At this time, all the time slots for the Hypogeum are available. Could you answer the following:

1. Do you think it is advisable to take the 10 tour and then go about touring the other sites?

2. How do we get to the Hypogeum - taxi or bus?

3. How do we get to Mdina - taxi or bus?

4. What other sites do you recommend?

Any additional information would be appreciated.

I would take a taxi from the ship direct to Paola for the the 1000 tour - that would give you plenty of time to do other things afterwards. It is a fairly quick journey by car to the Hypogeum but I would try to leave at about 0915.

When you have finished there if you want to go to Mdina, catch bus X3 from Paola Square (opposite the Prison). They run every 30 minutes. Alternatively you can use services 51/52/53 from Valletta bus station.

We are 6 adults wishing to holiday in Europe during the 3rd week of December this year. The choices are either Canary Islands, Cyprus or Malta. Can anyone suggest the warmest of the three and where we can combine sightseeing with night life etc? Thank you

The warmest will be the Canaries with temperatures generally in the mid 20's and sunny. In my opininion Lanzarote offers the best site seeing in the Canaries but you should probably check this out on the Canaries forum. Nightlife is pretty good and generally centred around hotels together with bars and restaurants. Malta will probably be the coolest although it is an island with a rich history and therefore plenty of siteseeing and you may experience some sunny days, albeit probably not hot enough for sunbathing. There are varied nightlife options the best probably in St Julians although Bugibba is also very popular. Ive never been to Cyprus so cant help with this choice.

Thank you for the tip. Our problem is that we have been to a lot of places around the world and hence have become very choosy. Our sons are aged 23 and always want nightlife not just scenic and historic sightseeing so it becomes a challenge to combine everything without freezing in the weather!

Paceville adjoining St Julians offers the liveliest nightlife options for 23 year olds in Malta and can easily be avoided by persons requiring more refined dining and entertainment options of which there is a good selection around the lovely Bays and Portomaso Marina.
