About the location
Valletta, Malta's capital, offers a true glimpse into this island nation’s chequered past. The city successfully combines the ancient with the modern – its cobbled streets are dotted with cool cafes and wine bars. There’s a roster of museums and galleries to check out, and in terms of sightseeing, a visit to St John's Cathedral is a must. Follow it up with a stroll around the harbour – it’s often described as one of the grandest and most beautiful in Europe. Oozing character and history at every turn, it’s easy to see why Valletta has captivated the hearts of so many over the years – from royalty and heads of state to poets and artists.
