Christmas 2014 in Malta

I want to get away from the unbridled consumerism of Christmas in the UK. Malta looks very interesting, with lots to do. I'm aiming to stay in Valetta & I'm assuming accommodation won''t be a problem. But will restaurants, cultural sites & places of interest be open over the holiday period? Will the bus service run normally? Any info would be really appreciated.

Nearly everything is open most days with the exception of Xmas day.

Buses run normally except for a period on Xmas day from mid - day to 15.00 hours ( 3 O`clock ) to allow the drivers time for Xmas lunch.

At 3 everything goes back to normal

Boxing day ---- which isn`t considered a holiday in Malta --- is back to normal.

Christmas is lovely in Malta and Valletta has lots going on.

Enjoy your stay.

Make sure you have dinner reservations for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day because the restaurants will be busy with both Maltese residents and tourists. It might be worth pre arranging this with your hotel. I like Christmas time in Malta and you will find it much less commercial than the UK.
