Valletta

4.4

Most Proud

Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order. One of the first cities ever designated as a World Heritage Site, this tiny port remains mostly Baroque in its character, though some of its landmark buildings also feature the finest elements of Mannerist, Neoclassical, and Modernist architectural styles. Home to just over 6,000 permanent residents, Valletta retains much of its small-town charm, its steep streets easily explored on foot. Begin your Maltese adventure with a visit to the city's main cathedral, famous for housing the only signed work by celebrated Italian painter Caravaggio. Valletta is in Island of Malta.

Where to stay in Valletta

The small city of Valetta offers fewer lodging options than some of Malta's larger cities, but accommodations include everything from upscale hotels to less-expensive guesthouses. Stay in the city center at one of several old-fashioned hotels to be in close proximity to sights like St. Johns Co-Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, multiple museums, and a wide variety of restaurants. One fun option involves renting traditional Valletta houses that have been converted into rental properties and date back to the time of the Knights of Malta. Smaller bed and breakfasts are dispersed throughout the city. Book well in advance to avoid high prices.
