The Three Cities

The south of Malta is extraordinary. Facing Valletta are three beautiful fortified towns known as the Three Cities: Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua. Taking a boat trip is the best approach to witness the beauty of the towns.


Marsaxlokk is Malta’s fishing village and it is one of the most picturesque scenes on the island. There are a number of boat trips that you can take across the village. If you want to experience this village at its best, Sundays are the best days to do so since there’s the traditional fish market.
