Hi all, wondering what the must see sights are in Valletta are for a 1 day stop. We'll be travelling with 2 toddlers therefore everything takes twice as long...so any tips on getting around and advice would be great. Thanks!

I would wander around the city.  Sit at a sidewalk cafe, there is a nice one just outside the Co-cathedral.  Let them run around the main square and chase pigeons.  There MIGHT be a parade or something going on there as well.  Stroll through the Barakka Garden and walk by the fort.  Just have a relaxing day.

Valletta is walkable and very close to the cruise pier. There is an elevator from the ‘pier level’ to the City

Go to visit St. John's Cathedral. It is breath-taking.

The fort (mentioned above) at the entrance to the harbor has a really interesting museum on the sieges of Malta.  Nice walk thru town to the fort and nice views also.  

 

Malta (think of its location) has had a pretty tough time ..... most recently in WW II.  Beautiful and quiet now, but its had some history!

If you want something really child friendly what about Popeye village? Taxis are very easy - book at the booking point as you leave the terminal (and pay there too).  Then when you want to go home do the same in the village.

 

I'm not sure two toddlers would be overly taken with St Johns.  It is fabulous - just perhaps a touch more adult?

I guess toddlers are also too young for Popeye village. You need somewhere to spend time, eat your lunch, to see some sites of Valetta (for adults) and not spend time with your toddlers in a vehicle.

Valetta has beautiful architecture and so much history but much less attractions for kids. They may enjoy walking along city walls and taking in great views and gardens. Can't think of anything else.
