Great trip across to Valletta then take electric trolley service which takes you up to Parliament Square, no hill to climb. Worth it

Decided to use the ferry as an alternative to the bus to get to Valletta from Sliema. Less crowded but quicker for a reasonable price.

A different way to travel..not the usual vehicle on the road. A couple of minutes experience to cross from Sliema ta Valletta by ferry. It is a pleasant experience for both adults and also kids.

This ferry runs constantly throughout the day and is very cheap, 50 cents each way for OAP or 1 euro 50 for an adult and a good cheap way to see the harbour

Very simple service which is easy and doesnt cost you to much. A taxi is a lot more expensive. Its also cool to look at the sunset if you are on the Ferry at the right time.
