Valletta ©
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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Valletta: Malta National Aquarium (in Qawra) and Mellieha (Mellieha Beach & Popeye Village Malta). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. John's Co-Cathedral, explore the ancient world of Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, explore the galleries of Lascaris War Rooms, and look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.

To find photos, ratings, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Valletta visit planner.
