Malta lies virtually in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, some 93 km south of the Italian island of Sicily. The islands are just a few hours’ flying time from most mainland European cities and have excellent intercontinental connections.

Several airlines operate daily flights to and from all the major airports in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East to Malta’s International Airport.


The Valletta bus terminus is the beginning and the end of the line for many bus routes on the island. Public transport in Malta is affordable though it can be slow, so plan your trip in time.

Consult the Malta Public Transport website to plan your journey and get more information about prices and the Tallinja discount card.


Valletta is connected by a ferry service to Sliema and the Three Cities. Travelling by ferry is probably the fastest and easiest way to reach Valletta. For the ferry schedule and prices consult The Valletta Ferry Services website.
