Valletta is small in size, and it is quite possible for most people to explore the whole city on foot.

Driving in the city can be a little problematic, especially when it comes to negotiating tight corners and one-way streets. Parking is also limited, because in addition to the resident population, many more drive into the city for business.

Travelling to Valletta by public transport is easy. Many of the buses start and finish their journey at the Main Terminus just outside City Gate. The Malta Public Transport company also operates a convenient circular route around Valletta.

A system of electric cabs is also in operation within Valletta. A romantic alternative is to use horse-drawn carriages known as Karozzin.
