Travel: Malta Day 2

Yesterday was day 2 in Malta.  We used the Hop On, Hop Off bus.  We decided on two routes.  One went to Mdina, Malta’s capital centuries ago, now a picturesque village in the center of the island.

The second route took us south to the arid coast and little beach towns before returning to the capital Valletta.  It was a fun day with the ride ending along the city’s upscale waterfront complete with hotels, condos, apartments, international shopping and restaurants.

The hilltop town of Mdina.
The third largest unreinforced dome in the world.
Ocean caves along the coast, underneath is the famed Blue Grotto.
Colorful boats are typical of the coastal resorts.
The rapidly changing waterfront is typically modern and old at the same time.
Old neighborhood near the port.
Just for giggles…this is the staircase exit in case the 15 story tourist elevator fails.
