Excellent - the views whilst coming in to the docks are out of this world. Easy walking to the open top buses for £15 p/p for going all around incl. Mdina. Very good value. Thomson tours cannot be better, only the busses are right in front of the boat.
Nice & easy access into the town (3 km away) by the port shuttle for 1.50 Euros p/p. You can visit a lot during 3-4 hrs before heading back to the ship. Most people stayed on board before the sail- away party (nothing spectacular but ok) - best on the top deck with a warm breeze.
