Getting There: Malta’s national airline, Air Malta, operates regularly scheduled flights to Valletta out of a number of European airports. Once in Malta, the Hypogeum, a UNESCO world heritage site, is easily reached by buses departing from the main terminal in Valletta. (Avoid taking taxis, which are exorbitantly expensive.) Be sure to make reservations at least two weeks prior to your visit to the Hypogeum; check out www.heritagemalta.org. for information on hours and ticket prices.
