Let's Do Malta
We started our exploration of Valletta by taking the public bus that run from the harbour to the city - or outside the walled city. It set us back a euro for the fare. We inquired about taking the tour bus, but we were informed that it was not the hop on hop off variety. What it is was a two-hour 3-city tour that did not include a tour inside the walled city. It was not what we wanted to do so this became a DIY tour.
And you know me, even with less than perfectly clean bus windows I do my drive by shooting. This one's my favorite so far.
The short drive was scenic with sea views on one side and the imposing wall on the other.
We saw this familiar stand selling almost anything you needed for a DIY exploration of the city. This stand reminds me of Manila more than anything else.
Just outside of the walled city is a familiar sign. Looking back, I wished I tasted their selections here.
And now we reached the gates of the walled city. I'll take you inside next post.
