    I don't know if anyone from the airport reads these postings but since my last post they have reduced the view of the car park so runweays make up more of the picture, now if we could have the web streamed instead of 5 secong jumps it would be good.
    Pity they can't have Skyline run it for them.

    I checked to see the airport webcam. I never saw the last one, so can't compare it, but I suppose it's better than not having one, stuttering or not.
    Just watching Star Breeze entering on another glorious sunrise. Carnival Vista and Thomson Celebration are due in too so another busy day.

    New airport cam is better than nothing JUST.
    OK if you like parked cars, vans and buses with the odd aircraft stuttering across the picture.
    Live stream might be better but as they have never replyed to any email I have sent them I don't hold out any hope for a change.

    Maltese Knight, I agree with you. I think it refreshes every few seconds. It would be great if the cameras were live like these are.

    As far as I can see the airport cam is not a live stream, it shows pictures every few second. Compare to the skylinecams over here its a bit.......

    I would just love to go and see all the places I look at through Skyline webcams. From this one in Malta, Switzerland, Venice to Honduras and a few other places in between. If only I had the money. Guess I'll just have to get a big win on the Lottery!!!!

    Can anyone tell me where I can find the Malta Airport website webcam? I went to their webpage but I couldn't find any live cameras of the airport traffic. Thanks.

Grand Harbour - Valletta

The stunning Maltese capital of Valletta (Il-Belt Valletta), gem of Mediterranean and one of the most beautiful Baroque jewels of the world, was considered one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites in Malta for its extraordinary heritage conservation.

A visit to Valletta is a real trip to the past, exactly when the Knights of St. John (later Knights of Malta) started its construction in 1566 on the rocky Mount Sciberras under Grandmaster Jean Parisot de la Valette who founded this fortress city that bears his name; thanks to their fortifications and massive bastions the knights won the bloody siege of 1565, part of this architectural treasure had fortunately survived World War II and natural disasters, today it is the main tourist attraction of a city with a large concentration of historic areas and magnificent views. As a charming open-air museum, Valletta is rich in ancient masterpieces that can be experienced while enjoying simultaneously the rhythm of a modern life, among its chaotic attractions, one of the safest and largest natural harbours in Europe, Grand Harbour (Il-Port il-Kbir), a great economic development opportunity; thanks to its very favourable position in the heart of Mediterranean, it originally represented an ideal place of refuge with waters deep enough to anchor, firstly occupied by Phoenicians who landed here, and later unsuccessfully controlled by Napoleon, under the British Military was massively fortified and improved with dockyard facilities, a wider entrance, harbour amenities and a greater anchorage partially destroyed during the world wars; completely restored, the multi-purpose Grand Harbour is today the center of the maritime activity of the whole island, a prestigious landmark of Malta and the premier destination for yachts, superyachts and cruise ships coming from all over the world.

Grand Harbour offers spectacular panoramic views as surrounded by a quantity of stunning inlets and ancient treasures such as Fort Saint Elmo (Il-Forti Sant Iermu), Fort Ricasoli (Forti Rikazoli), the picturesque village of Kalkara (Il-Kalkara), the fortified Three Cities of Vittoriosa (Birgu), Cospicua (Bormla) and Senglea (L-Isla) and not so far the stunning Barakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq); it welcomes million cruise passengers every year and give them at their arrival a first glimpse of a very versatile center known as Valletta Waterfront; as a multi-purpose area, it is a real landmark, one of the most frequented meeting points of Valletta, a high quality entertainment destination become increasingly popular for tourists and locals, a complete mix of retail, dining, leisure experiences and shopping along the water's edge where also festivities and outdoor themed events take place all year round. Originally a simple pier and a place where merchants used to unload their wares, this wonderful Baroque masterpiece was built by the Knights of St. John's Grand Master Manuel Pinto de Fonseca in the 18th century, over the years it was fortunately renovated and today is moreover a famous cruise and ferry terminal also providing efficient and affordable transport services within the Grand Harbour and neighbouring areas; Valletta Waterfront is certainly worth a visit, a simple stroll along the promenade either day or night with a view on its panoramic beauties we'll be a marvelous experience.
