Firstly you can buy a one day ticket which covers all destinations upto 11pm for 2.6 euro or a 7day all destination ticket for 12 euro. we bought the 7 day ticket and it was great value. Anyone who arrives in malta for the first time may look and thik the place needs renovating because a lot of the buildings appear to be run down but to get the best out of your malta trip you need to tour around and it is fairly easy by bus.
Rabat/Mdina: From Sliema we caught any bus going into Valletta normally 12,13,15. Where the bus unloads look to the right on the other side of the large fountain and see where the buses are lined up. go to bus stop number 9 and get the bus to Mdina/Rabat which is 52/53. The journey takes about 40 mins. Get off at Rabat and dont just walk around the square go up the main street which is directly in front of you slightly to the right as you get off the bus. This tkes you to another lovely square with a church , museum and cafes. Then walk back down the street and across the road where you got off the bus and turn right following the Mdina city wall around until you find the main entrance this is about 70yds so not far and their are toilets on the way before you get to the gate. Then spend at least an hour looking around the alleyways and main squre of Mdina and at the beautiful glass. Under no circumstances be tempted to get on a number 203 bus unless you have to as the journey is through towns that are log jammed with traffic and from experience is a very unpleasant journey. As i have said already you have to get inside malta to appreciate it.
San Anton Gardens: This can be reached by the 51,52,53 bus which goes onto Mdina again at bus stop 9. The journey is about 15-20 mins from Valletta and you get off the bus at ANTON which is a few minutes past the Cisk brewery. Cross the road walk about 75 yds down the street opposite bus stop and the side entrance gate is here. It is free to get in and the trees and plants are lovely. If you are taking kids or want a drink walk up through the gardens through a medievel covered area and you come to another exit. Cross the road and there is a cafe opposite with a kids play area and ponies and donkeys to see. Lovely day out.
