Bus 133 is a circular bus route that zips half-hourly around Valletta's city walls, calling at Castille, Marsamxett and Floriana. As well as being a good way to get around, this route offers some great views.

To & From the Sea Passenger Terminal

The Upper Barrakka Lift connects Valletta to the Sea Passenger Terminal at the Valletta Waterfront. There are also regular buses, as well as stops for the hop-on, hop-off services.

As at the airport, there's a taxi information kiosk on Valletta Waterfront where you organise and pay the set rate for your taxi journey upfront. The cheapest fare (to an address in Valletta or Floriana) is €12.

Car & Motorcycle

If you're driving, parking is limited within the city walls, but not impossible – look for a space that's not demarcated by green lines; otherwise there's a big underground car park just outside the City Gate in Floriana, near the Phoenicia Hotel. Valletta is eminently walkable so you don't need a car to get around.


There's a taxi rank just outside City Gate, and, within the city walls, Smart Cabs electric taxis can be picked up outside St John's Co-Cathedral. Taxis also wait near the Castille Hotel outside the pedestrian entrance to the Upper Barrakka Gardens.
