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.
For shopping fun, head to Malta Postal Museum or Mdina Glass. You'll get in some beach time at Ghajn Tuffieha Bay and Mellieha Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Valletta side-trips: Qawra (Malta Classic Car Collection Museum & Malta National Aquarium), Xemxija Heritage Trail (in St. Paul's Bay) and Mellieha (Popeye Village Malta, Mellieha Air Raid Shelter, & more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Great Siege of Malta and the Knights of St. John, take in the history at Lascaris War Rooms, contemplate the long history of St. John's Co-Cathedral, and explore the fascinating underground world of Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja).
