As you explore the city’s narrow alleys, you’ll be transported back in time to a place where knights roamed and legends were born.

Immerse Yourself in History:

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Valletta is a treasure trove of historical wonders. The city’s magnificent forts and bastions tell tales of battles and conquests that shaped Malta’s past. Don’t miss a visit to St. John’s Co-Cathedral, where you can marvel at its awe-inspiring baroque interior and the famous Caravaggio painting depicting the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist. History buffs will be in their element as they discover the secrets of the Grandmaster’s Palace and the intriguing War Rooms.

Indulge in the Mediterranean Cuisine:

The bustling streets of Valletta are home to some of Malta’s best restaurants, bars and cafes. Treat yourself to freshly caught seafood, mouthwatering pastizzi (traditional savory pastries), and delightful Maltese wines. Be sure to sample the local delicacies, such as rabbit stew and ftira (a delicious Maltese sandwich), to truly immerse yourself in local Maltese culture.

Idyllic Beaches and Crystal Waters:

While Valletta may not have its own sandy beaches, worry not! A short trip from the city will take you to some of Malta’s most stunning coastal gems. Explore the idyllic Blue Grotto, where you can take a boat tour through the awe-inspiring sea caves. Head to the golden shores of Mellieha Bay or the picturesque St. Peter’s Pool for a day of sun-soaked relaxation. The crystal-clear waters surrounding Valletta are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or simply unwinding under the Mediterranean sun. Or if you prefer, the infinity pool such as the one at the Phoenicia Malta offers visitors a spectacular view while enjoying a comfortable swim. 

City Break Charm:

Although Valletta is a hub of history and culture, it also offers a vibrant city break experience. Lose yourself in the bustling markets, shop for unique souvenirs, and sip a refreshing drink in the city’s charming squares. The bustling nightlife is sure to keep you entertained with its array of bars and clubs, catering to all tastes.
