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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Valletta: Mellieha (Popeye Village Malta, Mellieha Air Raid Shelter, &more) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in St. Paul's Bay). There's much more to do: Head underground at Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), take in the waterfront activity at Marsaxlokk Bay, take a leisurely stroll along Valletta Waterfront, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. John's Co-Cathedral.
