Valletta, Island of Malta

— 6 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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St. John's Co-Cathedral and Mnajdra. Do some cultural sightseeing at Spinola Bay and Saluting Battery. Change things up with these side-trips from Valletta: Mellieha (Mellieha Beach, Mellieha Air Raid Shelter, &more). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Casa Rocca Piccola, see the interesting displays at Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum, Head underground at Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), and wander the streets of Paceville.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Valletta trip builder.

Valletta is very close to Xghajra. Expect a daytime high around 18°C in January, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Sat) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to Ggantija.

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.
