THE VALLETTA RUNNING TOUR ca 10km | ca 60/80 min | Do you like running? Are you thrilled by the idea of enjoying Valletta in a different way? Do you feel like going into a kaleidoscopic run between palaces, ships, sea and fortifications? Let's do it! Running around Valletta, outside and inside the city walls, it’s a very satisfying ride. The route is about ten kilometers long (10km) and will be completed in about 60 to 80 minutes depending on our pace. We will run at your favorite pace with no rush, taking our time to enjoy the view, take photos and chat. We will meet in front of the Valletta Tritons Fountain which will be our starting and ending point. We we will skirt the whole perimeter of Valletta's walls from the Great Siege Road to the Waterfront, to finally unleashing ourselves along the two Valletta’s main arteries. It Is not a flat run, but more like a kind of “super funny urban trail”.
