TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This tour highlights the main attractions in Valletta, the capital city of Malta, built by Grandmaster Jean de la Vallette after the great siege of 1565. The run starts from the waterfront next to the cruise liner terminal, so also ideal for cruise liner guests.

Running along the sea our first stop are the Lower Barrakka Gardens and Siege Bell war memorial where you can admire the lovely views. Other attractions on the way, are the old hospital, which was used by both the knights and the British soldiers during World War 2 and Fort St Elmo. The run takes us to the other side of Valletta overlooking Marsamxett harbour, Manoel island and Sliema. Running inside the city, we pass by Manoel theatre, St George’s square, the President’s palace, St John’s Co-Cathedral, the new parliament and main entrance to Valletta.

All sights and places of interest that are not only beautiful, but also rich in history. Passing by the magnificent Auberge de Castille, we run around the Upper Barrakka gardens to admire the views of the Grand Harbour before heading back down to the waterfront.

Note: Including transport, this tour is estimated to last 2 hours.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. It is very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt - expect to run. 

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Malta, so that you know what temperatures to expect.  During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions. 
    In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen (at least SPF 30/50), so that sun burn is avoided. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general. 

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    There are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    The running pace is set on our private tours by you.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera/mobile phone and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer our private tours hotel pick-up service.

    Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment or at the standard meeting point.

That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
