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.
Let the collections at Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum and Malta Postal Museum capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fortifications Interpretation Centre - Fortifications Interpretation Centre and War HQ Tunnel. Change things up with these side-trips from Valletta: Mellieha (Ghajn Tuffieha Bay, Mellieha Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. John's Co-Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Mdina Old City, appreciate the history behind Mdina Main Gate - Baroque gateway, and explore the ancient world of Mnajdra.
