Hi all, are the lines quite long in the early morning? (9:30 when it opens) - I can't stand for very long in the queue so if they are quite long are there skip the line tickets we could purchase? (we are just paying at the entrance not with a guide)
The earlier the better is when we saw the fewest queuing people or if at all. Not aware of pre purchase tickets. Good luck.
We were their in the off season in late January so there were no lines.
I'm an amputee and the queue was fine when we went in February. I'm not sure how busy if a cruise ship in.
No wait in December in the morning...not sure about during prime tourist season
We were there at Xmas and found very queues very short
It all depends what time of year you visit Malta & how many cruise ships have docked that day! I visited in February & there was a queue for first opening but it looked manageable. However, I didn't visit the Co-Cathedral until 2 days later & joined the last opening time 3:45 pm, it was great as most visitors had left & I was able to really "see" the splendor! Hope this helps you decide!
There were no Queues in January in the afternoon. You will probably be there for an hour or two. Hope you enjoy it
There was no noticeable queue when we visited in February.
we got there at 2pm straight in about 40-50 people. give yourself 2 hours to fully enjoy it
Arrive early - prior to opening to get there first, there should only be a few people then.
There were no queues when we walked past around 11 but after 1pm the queue was long and it moved slowly. Get there early!
No queuing when we went in February. Could be different in the summer but shouldn’t think lines would ever be long.
We too, were there in February and encountered no lines. As a rule, I would always recommend arriving to high demand venues as early as possible if a timed entry ticket is unavailable. You can stay as long as you want. The audio tour (included) is quite lengthy and gives far more information that most anyone cares about. Plan on a few hours if you are gong to hear everything on the audio guide.
We got there at about 10.15 and went straight in but a huge tour came in just after us so I think earlier is better. It’s an amazing place , enjoy your visit .
The timing is important to this venue, the earlier (ie: 8.30am) the better
It will depend on the time of year you go. There were no queees in February.
10-15 before open at 9.30 and you will be the first to entry.
