Breakfast was great with just loads to choose from and eggs cooked to order. We couldn't wait to get out to explore. However, although we knew there were stairs to climb to get us from the hotel up to the roadside, we hadn't banked on there being 88 of them!! Yes, I kid you not - 88 steps to climb up and, of course, 88 to get back down again!! And, once up to the roadside, you had a hill to walk up to get to the bus station - or you could walk downhill towards where the ferry and water taxis were that take you over to Sliema. In any case, we walked our socks off!! Prior to travelling we knew that you could buy a weekly bus ticket for 12EU each, so we duly done that.

|Expensive, but nice|
|Sorry, I had started eating my pizza before I thought about taking a photo!! You can see the lasagne in the background.|
It's our wedding anniversary the next day and we had booked the Hypogeum for the afternoon, so that was something to really look forward to seeing.
