Valletta ©
Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Esplora Interactive Science Centre and Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum. Appreciate the collections at Malta Postal Museum and Fortifications Interpretation Centre - Fortifications Interpretation Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Valletta: Xemxija Heritage Trail (in St. Paul's Bay) and Mellieha (Ghajn Tuffieha Bay & The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieha). There's much more to do: get outside with Ghar Lapsi, explore the historical opulence of Casa Bernard, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and steep yourself in history at War HQ Tunnel.
