Sophisticated Sightseeing in Sliema

If you’re a sophisticated traveller in search of art and culture, you’ll love Sliema. Why not arrive in style with Shuttle Direct’s Malta Airport transfer?

Whether it’s art galleries you’re after or strolling around amazing churches, the atmospheric coastal town of Sliema offers a wealth of sights for culture aficionados.

Unwind while our Malta Airport transfer whisks you away on a pleasant 20-minute drive to the heart of Malta’s culture capital, where you will be able to explore the historic town of Sliema at your own pace.

Visit Remarkable Churches

Sophisticated travellers will appreciate a wander around one of the many stunning churches that this tiny Catholic country has to offer. The Chapel of Our Lady of Graces is well worth a visit. Dating back to 1802, it is the oldest church on the island and is home to two wonderful paintings by Italian Baroque artist, Mattia Preti.

A few streets away, the stunning neo-gothic façade of the church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel cuts an impressive figure from its vantage point overlooking Balluta Bay.

When you’re ready, you can take a quick stroll to the impressive Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, which boasts five works of art by the Maltese painter, Giuseppe Calì.

Perhaps the most striking church is the Baroque Stella Maris Church, which houses a statue of the Virgin Mary.

If you’re lucky, you may even get to witness these spectacular churches in all their glory during the village festivals, which are celebrated from July to September.

Christine X Art Gallery

Art lovers will not be disappointed with this glorious gallery.  Formerly known as Artitude, this wonderful little gallery boasts a number of avant-garde abstracts, contemporary interpretations of the Maltese landscape and figurative work by local and foreign up-and-coming artists.

Occasionally, the gallery hosts temporary exhibitions that feature local and international artists.

The Salesian Theatre

Just over a century ago, the Juventutis Domus opened its doors with the intention of giving young people a space to create new ideas.  Not much has changed since then, as the Salesian Theatre is still considered the artistic and cultural soul of the country. 

Each year, this cosy venue hosts a number of live music events, ranging from classical to jazz music. Theatre and art buffs will not be disappointed either, as a number of plays and contemporary art exhibitions take place in the venue on a regular basis.

Folklore Night at the Limestone Heritage Park and Gardens

Enjoy a sultry Mediterranean night in the open air whilst you relax with a glass of red wine and enjoy an evening of traditional music and dancing in Malta’s most unique venue.

Set in impressively landscaped grounds, the Limestone Heritage Park is perfect for a night under the stars.  Enjoy the freshest and most authentic Maltese gastronomy, such as crispy traditional bread that’s been dipped in olive oil, tangy goats’ cheese and tempting beef olives. And why not wash down these delicacies with a glass of local wine?

If you’re looking for entertainment, you’ve come to the right place: dancers and musicians will perform local dances such as the Maltese Frejgatina (Fishermen’s Dance) and the Farmer’s Dance. The hospitality and friendliness of the Maltese people ensure that this will be an unforgettable night.
