Malta Day 4

Day started again with a session in gym: walking up hills and running. Stretching.
Swimming in the outdoor pool.

After breakfast walked in Valletta to see the old town. Started to walk along Republic Street, the pedestrian shopping street, to Fort St Elmo. Saw Siege Bell, visited to Lower and Upper Barrakka Gardens. Went also down to the Waterfront next to the harbour with giant cruise liners.

Republic Street with its shops

Covered wooden balconies

Refreshing Maltese non-alcoholic drink made from bitter oranges & aromatic herbs - interesting, quite sweet

Instead of walking could have used "Karrozzin"

View to the Grand Harbour

Beautifully kept Lower Barrakka Garden

Orchids growing in the trees of Barrakka Garden

Nice houses by the Great Harbour

Upper Barrakka Garden

Spend some time reading at the hotel beach. Swimming, of course.

Aroma Luxe back massage
- relaxing treatment that frees the body from stress replacing it with sooting calm
- the massage area was the same room as the leg massage a day before. Nice spacious room. Relaxing bird singing as a backround music.
- same therapist, Gabriella, made the back massage and leg massage. Very professional.
