The grid of narrow streets in downtown Valletta contains many of the best shops on the island and you can find fashion, music and souvenirs for all tastes. Republic Street and Merchants Street are the major shopping destinations. In Sliema, Tower Road, Bisazza Street and the Strand are the main streets. Many shops shut between 13:00 and 16:00 in the heat of the sun, reopening in the evening. Shopping malls have started to appear on the islands, including Arkadia on Gozo, The Point in Sliema, Baystreet Shopping Complex in St Julian’s and Daniels Shopping Complex in Hamrun. You will also find a local market in each of the villages and towns across the islands; these have long been at the heart of local life.
