Walking up and down Valletta, as well as other cities in Malta is quite a chore. Most streets are very hilly. In fact, some of them are actually made up of stairs. (See The Seven Story street, a future blog) As a result, strolling along the side streets is very tiring. Here is a main street that is not so hilly. You will note that as you go down this street, it does seem to slope a bit. Still, it seems the exception to the rule and it is still a bit narrow. In general, prepare yourself, make a lot of stops and don’t rush.
