    Excellent Trip
    • Pozzallo to Malta with Virtu Ferries

      Excellent trip - we enjoyed Malta and the people as well as historical settings. We would have enjoyed much more if there was a more reasonable schedule, mainly the early morning departure.

    Valletta - Pozzalo, very good, Pozzalo - Catania by bus, a joke
    • Malta to Catania with Virtu Ferries

      The bus service was quite chaotic. Where to find the bus? Full grill on the internal bus heater when the outdoor temp was slightly below 19*C. Drop-off under a railway bridge in the dodgy part of the Catania harbour area without any information, no taxi stand! The harbour guard was the only source of information, and he told us to get out of the area as quick as possible as this area was no good for tourists, specially not with suitcases... Got hold of some police officers that advsed us to head for the railway station some 1 km away! No available taxis at the railway station, only pirates. 1.5 hours after drop off from the Virttu Lines bus transfer we arrived at our hotel blåse to Catania centre. Ferry service OK, land transfer terrible!
