Valletta, Malta’s capital, World Heritage site and European City of Culture 2018, is nothing short of an open-air museum. It is a living experience of Baroque architecture, a monument donated by the Knights of St John nearly five centuries ago.
Throughout the years,
Valletta has welcomed emperors, heads of state, artists and poets and is now the permanent seat of the Maltese government. Offering a selection of quaint cafés, wine bars and a variety of cuisines, the city is today one of Malta’s main tourist attractions,
hosting among others, the majestic St John’s Co- Cathedral, the imposing bastions and a treasure of priceless paintings. It also provides a stunning snapshot of Malta’s Grand Harbour, often described as the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.
