The Neighbourhood This is one of the best neighbourhoods in Valletta. It is charming, photogenic and although only 2mins away from Valletta's main square, has a village feel. The quaint narrow streets, old buildings and imposing churches make this neighbourhood magical. Location You're in a quaint street of Valletta and on foot you're: - less than 1 min away from the national theatre; - 2 mins away from the main shopping street and Valletta's main squares - Piazza Independenza and Piazza Regina; - 7 mins away from the ferry to Sliema; - 8 mins away from the unique St. John's Co-Cathedral, Renzo Piano's City Gate Project and open air theatre (old opera house site); - 10 mins away from Valletta's rocky beaches; - 12 mins away from Malta's central bus terminus. From there buses go to every corner of the island; - 12 mins away from the superb view of the Grand Harbour from St. Barbara's Bastions and the Upper Barrakka gardens; - 15 mins away from the sea-taxis to the Three cities.
