distance from valletta to Mdina

Hi we will be docking at Valletta for about 7 hours from a cruise ship, I would love to visit to Mdina, please could you tell me how long it would take us from Valletta and the best route to get there.

If anyone has any other places within easy reach of Valetta, I would also appreciate the information.

Thanks in advance

AHOY THERE!!!

There you go copy and pasted from somewhere....

From the bus terminal in Valletta you can take a bus to Mdina. Bus N° 51, ​​52

and 53 run every 10 minutes and take you to Mdina in about half an hour.

Or a cab (but pricey ish)

Enjoy

Sometimes I believe ships dock across from Valletta rather than alongside. This may impact on your accessibility to the bus station.

It will be quite easy to get a bus there as suggested above. The bus station is walkable from the main dock but does involve an uphill element. Be careful not to leave it too late to return as traffic on Malta can be intense.

Valletta offers a great deal and Mdina is quite small. If you have not been to Valletta before it is a beautiful gem and great to wander around.

An option is an open top hop on/hop off tour as mentioned in the link given in reply 3.

A full loop would be about 3 hours plus time taken to stop at the various sites (you leave the bus and get on a later one, they are every 30 mins).

That would let you add places such as Mosta.

Allow plenty of time as buses can get full, and there's no guarantee of a seat on the next bus.

This will cost more than a public bus - about 18 but you may be able to haggle

Try and visit Valletta centre too.
