No trip to Malta is complete without a visit to the island’s capital, Valletta. Only 1km by 600m in size, the city is packed with sites of historical significance from ancient forts and historical museums to 16th century Baroque palaces, gardens and churches. Be sure not to miss St John’s Co-Cathedral and museum, the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, or take a ferry to the Three Cities- the trio of the fortified cities of Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua.
Located on the North-eastern coast, Sliema is a great place to base yourself and a hub for shopping, entertainment and café life. Its main attraction is the “Sliema Front”, a 10km promenade which stretches from Ta’Xbiex and Gzira in the South to St. Julian’s in the north. The town is filled with history, most famously Fort Tigne and Stella Maris Church.
Mdina, also known as Malta’s ‘Silent City’ is a fortified city which sits on top of one of the highest hills in Malta. The ancient walled city was once the old capital through the Middle Ages and was home to some of the mostof the island’s nobility. Today, Mdina is one of Malta’s most popular attractions and home to fewer than 300 people. Some of its main sites include the Roman Catholic St. Paul Cathedral, the French Baroque Palazzo Vilhena and the Carmelite Church and Priory.
St. Julian’s or San Giljan, is located north of Valletta and is mostly famous for its thriving nightlife and tourism. What was once a fishing village is now a hub for new and luxurious hotels, many different waterfront restaurants and trendy nightclubs, mostly centred in an area known as Paceville.
An authentic Maltese fishing village, located in the South-Eastern part of Malta. The relaxed village is famous for its daily open-air fish market and photogenic harbour lined with decorative painted boats called Luzzus. Some highlights of the village include the Marsxlokk church, dedicated to the Madonna of Pomeii, Fort St. Lucian which was built by order of Saint John, and the thousand-year-old Fort Tas-Silġ.
Home of the famous Blue Lagoon, Comino is a small island which sits between the main islands of Malta and Gozo. Being only 3.5 square kilometers, the island is car free and virtually uninhabited. Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers and windsurfers. For the more adventurous travellers, the island is ideal for camping or those who enjoy spending the day hiking.
