Luqa Airport Car Rental
Luqa Airport, also known as Malta International Airport, is on Malta island, about 10 km far from the capital city of the archipelago, La Valetta, and it is the only one on the island and on the archipelago.
Born as a military airport, it was opened also to civil transportation in 1958 after the refurbishment and in 1992 it was made more modern and efficient. In this airport flights from many European countries and charter flights transit.

Car rental at Luqa Airport makes easier your vacation of tranquillity on Malta island.
Luqa: points of interest
The island of Malta is visited by millions of tourists every year, attracted by both the crystal-clear sea and the possibility to combine artistic tours.
Thanks to the car rental at Luqa Airport, you will have the opportunity to visit the town-fortress of La Valetta, where you can find a series of monuments enclosed within the bastions overlooking the sea. The old town is perfectly preserved and proposes Baroque treasures, ancient noble palaces, votive niches, but also important churches such as the Cathedral of St. John, where art lovers can admire two Caravaggio’s paintings.
Another point of interest of the city are the Upper Baracca Gardens, very silent and fine gardens from where you can enjoy the panorama that hugs Cospicua, Birgu and Senglea. In Republic Street, true commercial heart of Malta’s capital city, you will find trendy bars, in addition to artisan workshops and boutiques where you can buy the best international labels products.
One of the buildings you must visit during your vacation in Malta is the Grandmaster’s Palace, whose construction dates back to 1571 and that was the seat of the Grandmaster of the Knights of St. John for more than 300 years, while today it is the presidential headquarter and seat of the Parliament. Taking a guided tour into the rooms opened to public, tourists can enjoy a complete journey into the history of the island and especially of the Knights of Malta.
Luqa: art and culture
A vacation in Malta offers many opportunities also to art lovers, who can admire an artistic collection of great value in the National Museum of Fine Arts and the frescos in the Norman House in the Falzon Palace.
For those who love contemporary art we suggest a visit to the St. John’s Cavalier Art Centre, where many artworks by local artists are exhibited. Still in the capital city you will find the Archaeological Museum, where a great collection of prehistoric objects and artefacts are preserved, and the War Museum.
In the capital city, exhibitions and concerts are regularly held, but also street shows. Moving with the rental car picked up at Luqa Airport, you can also visit the Museum of Roman Antiquities and some Roman catacombs in the close Rabat.
