The beautiful capital city of Malta, Valletta, is home to an array of impressive buildings that tell stories of a glorious and grand past, at times scarred by wars and sieges.
Valletta is a living, outdoor museum of architecture, history, art, religious iconography and so much more. Valletta is a World Heritage City and UNESCO protected site, as well as being voted European Capital of Culture 2018.
Whether you get to Valletta by road or sea, the entrance to the city is a breath-taking one with enormous bastion walls surrounding the archipelago and each side offering a different view – a striking skyline when approaching Valletta from the Sliema side, beautiful Upper and Lower Barrakka gardens if entering via the Grand Harbour, and the new Renzo Piano architectural design if entering on foot through City Gate.
