Valletta, Island of Malta

— 3 nights

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.
Head to Malta Postal Museum and The Silversmith's Shopfor plenty of shopping. Museum-lovers will appreciate Lascaris War Rooms and Fort St Elmo - National War Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Mellieha (Mellieha Air Raid Shelter & Mellieha Beach) and Hornblower Cruises (in Bugibba). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. John's Co-Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at Fort Rinella, steep yourself in history at Parrocca San Pawl Nawfragu, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Mdina Old City.

Land of Honey
Aside from the crystal azure waters and the soft sandy beaches in Malta, there is more ancient, medieval, and Baroque architecture here than most visitors have time for. Whether you are looking for a relaxing vacation spent people-watching and sun-bathing or a history lesson filled with fortified cities and catacombs, Malta lets you hop from island to island with a plethora of options. And with so much coastline wherever you are in Malta, opportunities for water sports abound, including snorkeling and diving. Despite the thriving tourism, many areas feel uncrowded due to lack of residency, leaving you space to enjoy the sun and sea at your own pace.
