Time at various sites

Hello,

Still haven't given up visiting Malta, although the fates at times seem to be against it...a long story.

My question:

How long should one plan on visiting

a. Ghar Dalam Cave and Museum

b. Tarxien Temples

c. Hagar Qim and Mnajdr Temples?

already have ticket for Hypogeum, but will be using hop on/hop off bus so trying to get a sense of how to structure the day.

thanks.

I think you will need about an hour each for Ghar Dalam and Tarxien.

Two hours or so should be right for Hagar Qim.

If you are an archeologist and wish to delve deeper into these sites then you might need longer.

I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

Perhaps you need to get out more then !

Obviously I was referring to triq Borg Oliver - the road that runs alongside St.Julians Bay.

First time to be called the waterfront - however, I'm easily confused.

By the way, was on the 'waterfront' at St. Julians today to celebrate Paddys Day - great crowd at Saddles and at Ryans - Dubliner empty by comparison - the 'Black Stuff' HO/HO a site to behold.
