With a coast lined with quality hotels and restaurants, car hire in Sliema will make for the perfect opportunity to get out of your base in the town. The Stella Maris Church is a prime representation of history, dating back to 19th century. The Parish Church is a welcome break from the array of modern amenities in the nearby area. Sliema literally translates as peace, which describes the area perfectly if you're looking for that relaxing beach break. When hiring a car in Sliema, take advantage of the extensive Maltese coastline. With just a 122 square miles to cover across the island of Malta, you have plenty to explore but can easily fit it into a short trip.
Fort Tigné is an early example of the polygonal system used in fortification construction. It lies on the very tip of the town of Sliema and is a short five minute drive from the Parish Church of Sacro Cuor. If you're hiring a car in Sliema, you can head just outside of town onto Manoel Island, to see Fort Manoel which is just across the harbour.
There is a ferry from Sliema to Valletta, or it's just a fifteen minute drive around the inside edge of the island. Valletta is the Maltese capital and becomes beautifully lit up at dusk. The waterfront is lined with colourful houses and is the ideal spot for an evening out for dinner, as well as the Malta Jazz Festival held annually in mid-July.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
