With the airport based by the town of Luqa it is sometimes referred to as Luqa Airport by the locals, but dont let this fool you into thinking it is a long drive from other towns. It is a simply twenty minute drive to the capital Valletta, and only 40 minutes to the northern town of Mellieha. No matter where in Malta you are staying, you are never too far from your hotel. During your stay, find the time to visit St. Johns cathedral in the capital with its incredible baroque architecture and paintings by Caravaggio. Head inland to see the old capital Mdina, where every street is laden with history and the medieval walls have been perfectly preserved so you feel as though you are stepping back in time. To make full use of your car hire in Malta, take a trip north to the famous Azure Window: a natural limestone arch in the sea, perfectly framing the blues of the Mediterranean. With wonders like this perched all around you, make use of the freedom a Malta car hire affords you, and see it all with Sixt.
