Valletta, Island of Malta

— 7 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mellieha (Mellieha Parish Church, Popeye Village Malta, &more) and Malta National Aquarium (in Qawra). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. John's Co-Cathedral, take in the waterfront at Valletta Waterfront, explore the ancient world of Mnajdra, and browse the exhibits of Fort St Elmo - National War Museum.

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.
