Malta’s own capital, Valletta has been bringing together the old with the new whilst offering picturesque views of the Grand Harbour.
Set on a peninsula overlooking harbours and creeks on both sides, the city replaced Mdina as the nation’s capital. It has a long and illustrious history as a centre of governance and administration for all those who ruled over the archipelago since its establishment after the great siege of 1565.
Modern Valletta is a thriving city. Thanks to its grid layout and small size, the city can easily be explored on foot, and the intrepid adventurer will be well rewarded with expansive views, quaint shops selling all manner of goods, great restaurants, and above all, stunning architecture.
