Most Proud

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Valletta: Mellieha (Popeye Village Malta & Mellieha Parish Church) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in St. Paul's Bay). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. John's Co-Cathedral, take in nature's colorful creations at Lower Barrakka Gardens, see the top attractions with Merill Eco Tours, and brush up on your military savvy at Fort St Elmo - National War Museum.

To see other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Valletta planning tool.

Pearl of the Mediterranean

Philosopher Cicero once described Syracuse as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all." A powerful city-state of ancient Greece, Syracuse now is the capital of the eponymous Italian province on the eastern coast of Sicily.
On the 17th (Mon), explore the ancient world of Teatro Greco, then pause for some serene contemplation at Duomo di Siracusa, then ponder the world of politics at Palazzo Vermexio, and finally head off the coast to Ortigia. Keep things going the next day: get engrossed in the history at Museo Archeologico Regionale Paolo Orsi, delve into the distant past at Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, then pause for some serene contemplation at Monastero del San salvatore, then get to know the fascinating history of Centro Storico, and finally get to know the fascinating history of Corso Vittorio Emanuele III.

Plan my Syracuse trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
