The capital city of Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for good reason. Enjoy getting lost in the alleyways that are full of balconies sticking out from above. Stop and enjoy any one of the famous attractions in town like St. John’s Co Cathedral, the National Museum of Fine Arts or The Royal Opera House just to name a few.
Another great place to explore is Mdina, the old capital. Located right in the middle of the island on a hill, this town offers a beautiful view of the island below and is home to around 300 residents. It is worth taking the time to walk around the many squares and streets during the day or night and explore the treasures that are to be found within this walled city.
If you are looking for activities to do while in Malta, there are plenty to choose from. Spend time on the quiet beach of Selmun and explore the crystal water while snorkeling. If you want to try out other water sports, make your way to Golden Bay and rent out whatever equipment you may need. For complete novices, push yourself to sign up for a course in scuba diving, paragliding for a real thrill.
Whenever you go to Malta, you will most likely get to experience one of the many festivals that takes place there throughout the year. Along with the many Catholic holidays, especially during Holy Week, there is also a Fireworks Festival at the end of April and a 3-day Malta Jazz Festival in July that is not to be missed.
