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.
Get out of town with these interesting Valletta side-trips: Mellieha (Mellieha Parish Church, Mellieha Beach, &more), Scuba & Snorkeling (in St. Paul's Bay) and Malta National Aquarium (in Qawra). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of St. John's Co-Cathedral, delve into the distant past at Mnajdra, take a leisurely stroll along Valletta Waterfront, and explore the world behind art at Casa Rocca Piccola.

To find traveler tips, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Valletta road trip planning website.

As the largest island in the country, Island of Malta is a center for Mediterranean discovery, luxurious relaxation, historical exploration, and buzzing European nightlife. Surrounded by ancient temples and old cities, the island almost feels like an archaeological site that's been converted into a prime vacation spot. Tourists flock here for the aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean Sea, but you don't have to spend all your time on the beach. With a plethora of activities for any type of traveler, you may find yourself exploring a national museum, admiring the collections of boats and yachts in the bays, or people-watching in one of the many bustling squares.
