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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Mellieha Beach and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at St. John's Co-Cathedral and Lascaris War Rooms. Get out of town with these interesting Valletta side-trips: Mellieha (Paradise Bay, Our Lady of the Grotto, & more), The Citadel (in Victoria) and Victoria Lines (in Madliena). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Mdina Old City, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ggantija Megalithic Temples, pause for some serene contemplation at Rotunda of Mosta, and brush up on your military savvy at Fort Rinella.
