We liked wandering in Valletta without a definite goal. We just saw the narrow streets and enjoyed the special atmosphere. This street is one of our favourite ones. We admired the magnificent and unusual balconies of the old buildings. I think you need comfortable shoes...More

It's a good walk from bus station end of Valletta to the port. But a hard walk back in hot weather. Advise to Walk down early spend day a fort and sea front before walking back when cooler in the evening.

If you are visiting Valletta, you will wind up on this street and it is the things on the street (restaurants, bars and attractions) that make the street. So the street itself is not a destination to plan on, but you will be sure to...More

Valleta is such a beautiful town with so much history and attractive buildings. This is one of my favourite streets to walk down from top to bottom. I particularly like all the balconies on the buildings. If there is one street that always reminds me...More

This alley way has some great bars and restaurants and is well worth cussing out. It can get very busy but the atmosphere is great. A good mix of italian and local food is available.

Yes this is an old street that has done very interesting houses of great age on either side which are great to look at and just imagine the history and what they have seen in their lifetime - a good chance for photo shots here

Valletta has some really interesting streets. Some look like streets you would find in San Fransisco. Like switch backs. To avoid these walk round the waterfronts. Easier on the legs.
