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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mdina Main Gate - Baroque gateway and War HQ Tunnel. Visit St. John's Co-Cathedral and St. Francis' Church Valletta for their historical value. There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Mnajdra, tour the pleasant surroundings at Malta Falconry Centre, get engrossed in the history at Great Siege of Malta and the Knights of St. John, and take in the history at Lascaris War Rooms.

A growing town in the northwestern section of Malta, the lively tourist destination of Mellieha sits perched between two picturesque bays.
Get some cultural insight at St. George's Basilica and Mdina Old City. Step off the beaten path and head to Casa Bernard and Spas. Change things up with these side-trips from Mellieha: Victoria (Spoonman’s Shop & Cittadella Visitors' Centre). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Mellieha Beach, steep yourself in history at Mellieha Air Raid Shelter, don't miss a visit to The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieha, and pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of the Grotto.
