Port of Valletta

Pinto, Valletta

The Basics

Ancient forts and winding streets dot the hillside of Malta’s capital, and its multiple historic influences–notably Greek, Roman, and Arab—can be seen in the local architecture. While the area is easy to explore independently (most Maltese people are fluent in English), you’ll cover more ground in less time by joining a half- or full-day shore excursion, walking tour, or bike trip. Don’t miss highlights such as St. John’s Co-Cathedral, the Grand Master’s Palace, and Casa Rocca Piccola.
