Another mode of transport in Malta is taxi. Taxis are easily identifiable thanks to their white color. It is necessary to settle the price before traveling in a taxi in order to avoid any unpleasant experiences later on (one could refer to the official informations on the taxi price of the Malta Transport Authority). On arrival at the airport, you will have to go to the "Taxi" ticket office which gives tickets according to the desired destination. A taxi network run by private garages also exists (these taxis are black in color), which is particularly reliable.
Car renting is also possible in Malta. It is a left-hand drive in Malta and sign post are on the right-hand side. Car renting rates are particularly attractive in Malta, especially at the airport. Principal international companies (Hertz, Avis, etc.) exist inside the international airport.
Among museums that one must see, the National Museum of Fine Arts exhibits splendid masterpieces.
The Mdina cathedral, St George's basilica, Gozo's cathedral should be cites as religious places to visit.
Shopping in Malta is characterized by two opposite aspects - modernity and traditions. Indeed, near fashion boutiques, more traditional Maltese products can be found.
Open air markets are also a tradition in Malta and interesting items can be found.
