In March (next month) we intend visiting the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Temples from Valletta using public bus.
I see there are a couple options.
(i) Two buses: Bus X4, X5, X7 from Valletta to airport and then 201 from the airport to Hagar Qim.
(ii) Direct bus 71 from Valletta which, according to the winter timetable, terminates at Zurrieq terminus. According to Google maps this is about 3km from Hagar Qim. We love walking so this distance is no problem.
My query is whether, traffic wise, it is safe to walk this route? Are there footpaths or a pedestrian way along it?
If not, we may use option (i).
Thanks for your help.
