Malta Day 1



Arrived to Malta at 7.33am.
Took a taxi to Hotel Excelsior in Floriana, Valletta. Taxi fare was €15,75


The room was not ready yet so had a breakfast in the hotel.
Got a nice room but without a seaview. With an extra cost possible to get one in the afternoon.

Went for a walk for 2,5hours around the bays and harbours to Sliema. From there a ferry to Valletta, €0,93.





Lunch at Cockney's
Marsamxett Landing Place, Valletta
Portion of garlic olives
Grilled Kahli fish
Mixed salad
French fries
-Kahli was a bit like Dorada
- lunch was ok, nothing special
€51 for 2 persons




Only a short way back to the hotel. Had a nap by the pool.


The room with a sea view was ready. Somehow it is important to see the sea every time when there is a possibility for it.

Had a 35mins run in the hotel's gym, made also some stretching and had a swim in the indoor pool and in the very warm sea. There is a small white, rocky beach belonging to the hotel. Not much but enough.


Dinner at hotel
BBQ by the pool
Grilled tuna with sweet chilisauce
Salad

Fruit tart

Donato Chardonnay

- the bbq was just perfect
