About Malta

Malta is a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea just south of Sicily. There are lots to do and visit on the island including Fort Rinella, Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, the Megalithic Temples, Valletta water front, scuba diving and of course relaxing on the gorgeous beach!

About Catania

The affects of which have been felt by Catania several times over the years. The distinct dark grey volcanic rocks used in the construction of many buildings represent this fact.

Catania was rebuilt gradually over the years after it was completely destroyed due to a violent earth quake in 1169. Catania was initially part of the Roman empire but was later taken over by the Greeks. However, most of Catania's grand palaces and wide streets were built in the 18th century when noble families from across the eastern Sicily began to flock to Catania.

Catania features many Baroque buildings and churches along with a number of Roman theatres, Piazzas and beautiful palaces. Catania with its black and white buildings offers a magnificent effect. Catania also offers a choice of restaurants and large number of shops scattered around the main centre.

    Valletta - Pozzalo, very good, Pozzalo - Catania by bus, a joke
    • 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!

    Travelling with our pet dog
    • I choose this route as it was cheaper but much longer. I thought the journey was from 1pm till 7pm but it was nearer 2pm when we left and after 8pm when we arrived.
