Valletta holidays 2021

Founded by the Knights of Saint John in 1566, Valletta has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s little wonder why. With architectural heritage and artworks around every corner, holidays in Valletta are bound to impress all self-respecting history buffs.

Built on a hill, Malta’s compact capital is laid out in a grid formation, with many streets commanding gorgeous views of the harbour. In addition, the city is a mere skip and a jump away from some of the country’s most scenic beaches. Away from its historical and natural attractions, Valletta is peppered with cosmopolitan coffee shops, restaurants and bars.

Nature in Valletta

Those looking for respite amid nature, won’t be disappointed. The Maltese city’s Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens command scenic views of the Grand Harbour. Plus, the beautifully-manicured grounds feature flower beds, fountains and sculptures.
