The Rise of City Breaks and Why Malta is a Good Bet

City breaks have become increasingly popular over the years as air travel has become cheaper and more regular. These days, you can often find a flight to your favourite city for the cost of a regular dinner at an average restaurant. So it is no wonder that more and more people opt to getaway from it all and enjoy a quick City break.

The appeal of city breaks lies in the opportunity to explore new cultures, food and history.

As a popular City break destination, Malta’s capital, Valletta,  offers visitors the opportunity to explore rich history, culture, and traditions. This UNESCO World Heritage site is home to stunning Baroque architecture, museums, palaces, and gardens that offer a glimpse into the island’s past.

The Phoenicia Malta makes for the perfect hotel during your Malta city break as it is located right outside the gates of Valletta. In fact, we have beautiful suites that look out over Triton fountain and Valletta’s City Gate.  

As a relatively small island, visitors may be tempted out of the City to explore the rest of the island. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll along Valletta’s streets, visit museums and churches, take a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon, or simply relax on the island’s beautiful beaches. There’s plenty to see and do while on Holiday in Malta.

Another reason why Malta city breaks are so popular is the warm and sunny weather. Malta is blessed with a Mediterranean climate that guarantees sunny skies and mild temperatures throughout the year. This makes it an ideal destination for those seeking a break from cold, grey weather.

Malta is also renowned for its excellent cuisine, which is a blend of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences. Visitors can enjoy fresh seafood, delicious pastries, and hearty stews, among other dishes. Malta’s wine culture is also worth exploring, with many local wineries offering tours and tastings.

Finally, Malta is a destination that offers something for everyone. From history buffs to foodies, beach lovers, and adventure seekers, there is always something to do or see on the island. Malta city breaks offer an opportunity to discover new things and create unforgettable memories.

In conclusion, Malta city breaks have become increasingly popular thanks to the island’s rich history, Mediterranean climate, excellent cuisine, and diverse attractions. Valletta, in particular, offers a glimpse into the island’s past through its stunning architecture, museums, and gardens. The Phoenicia Malta is the best place to enjoy a city break, offering a luxurious experience that combines comfort, style, and the best of Maltese hospitality.
