Virtu Ferries was an easy hassle free way to travel. For a small fee I upgraded to 'club class' although on their site there was no explanation to be found of what that offered (that could be improved on), it meant a sectioned off area with reclining chairs, and blankets (fabulous if you need to catch up on some sleep), outdoor area if you wold rather some fresh air and priority disimbarking.Read More Read Less
"Beautiful new ship with excellent, attentive staff"
We decided to take the ferry from Malta to Pozallo instead of flying and were so happy with the brand new ship we were able to travel on. It was beautiful! The staff was also very nice and attentive. The only negative was the choppy seas which made us a little sea sick, but that was not the fault of the ferry or the staff. In fact, the staff did everything they could to make it better for us. We would definikty use this ferry service again!! Just maybe on a smoother sea day.Read More Read Less
The Valletta Pozzallo ferry route connects Malta with Sicily. Currently there is just the 1 ferry company operating this ferry service, Virtu Ferries. The crossing operates up to 10 times each week with sailing durations from around 1 hour 45 minutes.
Valletta Pozzallo sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.
Valletta is the capital of Malta and lies in the central eastern part of the island and the Valletta Peninsular is home to two natural harbours; Marsamxett and the Grand Harbour, which is Malta's main port that has a number of quays at Marsa. Along the old sea wall of Valletta's waterfront, which was built by Manuel Pinto de Fonseca, there now stands a cruise liner terminal. Many of the city's buildings date back to the 16th century and were built during the reign of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as the Knights Hospitaller. The mainly Baroque city also has traces of Mannerist, Neo-classical and modern architecture and the effects of the Second World War on the city are clear to see with many scars left behind - particularly the demolition of The Royal Opera House. In 1980 Valletta was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the island's cultural centre with many churches, palaces and museums for tourists to explore.
Ferry services operating from the port depart to Catania and Pozzallo.
The Italian town of Pozallo is located in the Ragusa region on the west coast of Sicily. A popular pastime for many of the town's visitors is to visit one of the town's beaches which have been awarded Blue Flag status in recognition of their water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety. The 2nd and 3rd week of August is perhaps the best time to visit Pozallo which is when the town hosts Ferr' Agosto and is when it is not uncommon to find many people partying and sleeping on the beach.
Some of the region around Pozallo has changed significantly over the past two decades which is largely in response to tourism although there are still places that have managed to remain untouched over the last two centuries and have retained a lovely 18th century atmosphere.
The town is also a major port with ferry services operating to Malta with a journey time of around 90 minutes on a high speed ferry.
