If you're planning to visit more than a few of Malta and Gozo's cultural treasures, it's a good idea to purchase a multisite pass from Heritage Malta, which covers 23 Heritage Malta sites plus the Citadel Visitor Centre and the National Malta Aquarium. Admission fees can mount up, considering that a single adult ticket to the Armoury and State Rooms in Valletta costs €10, the Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra Temples cost €10, and most other sites cost €5 or €6.
The pass offers 30 days of admission to most Heritage Malta sights (the Hypogeum is an exception; see www.heritagemalta.org for a full list). An adult/child pass costs €50/25, while a family ticket (two adults and two children) is an even better bargain at €110.
