Head down to the Sliema Ferries terminus on the Strand and jump on a 'hop-on hop-off' open top bus tour of the North of the island which both starts and ends in Sliema.
Tickets can be bought before boarding at the small kiosk marked 'Maltasightseeing'. Then just get on the BLUE bus and relax. The best views are from the upper deck of course.
The tour takes around two hours and costs 15 Euro per adult but it is definitely worth the money and time. There is audio commentary throughout the tour and the driver will provide you with earphones so you can understand more about the history and tradition of the areas you pass through. Commentary is available in eight languages: Maltese, English, German, French, Danish, Italian, Spanish and Japanese.
The highlights of the tour are the Silent city and former capital of Mdina, the Mosta Dome and the great sea views between Bugibba and St Julians. The beauty of this trip is that you can hop off the bus wherever you like and rejoin a following service, just make sure you keep hold of your ticket!
About 7 buses operate a day during weekdays and Saturdays with about 4 in operation on Sundays. There is a gap of an hour between each. Don't miss the last one! Also be aware that some of the places you visit may be closed on Sundays. It's best to check before you get off.

Address: Sliema Ferries, Sliema Strand
