Valletta Waterfront, Valletta
(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Originally built in the 18th century as an area for stores and warehouses, Valletta Waterfront serves as a good place to grab a bite to eat, shop, and simply enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of Malta along its historic harbor. After heavy bombing during World War II, the waterfront's reconstruction has led to a mix of old architecture alongside modern improvements. Notice the thick walls that you walk along--meant to protect the city from invaders--as well as the different colored doors of the buildings, which once symbolized what kind of goods were stored within: yellow for wheat, green for produce, blue for fish, and red for wine. Watch the luxury yachts and large cruise ships drift in and out of the harbor. Take a harbor cruise to learn more about the area's history. Use our Valletta itinerary builder to arrange your visit to Valletta Waterfront and other attractions in Valletta.
