Old town Valletta

Valletta is Malta’s capital city. Valletta is always brimming with culture and history.

The Blue Grotto

If you’re on the island, don’t miss out on the opportunity to make a visit to the Blue Grotto. It’s on our list of the top 5 places to see in Malta!

The Silent City of Mdina

Mdina is one of the top must-sees in Malta. It’s popular with foreigners and locals alike. Due to its historical background and beautiful antique buildings, it’s a location not to be missed. The lack of vehicles in Mdina’s quiet streets make the city peaceful and tranquil.

The sister island of Malta

If you’re visiting Malta, don’t forget to spend a few days on its sister island of Gozo. It’s smaller and less hectic than Malta’s busy streets. The grass looks greener in Gozo. There’s a concoction of history, religion and beauty – all on one island.

Hagar Qim temples

A UNESCO-listed megalithic site, the Hagar Qim Temples are located on Malta’s south coast in a commanding position overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Island of Filfla. Being as old as from the 3600 BC to 3200 BC, the ancient site was buried under the earth until its resurrection in 1839.
