Valletta - A city once ruled by knights

The striking capital of Malta spans a 7000-year history. Discover a city ruled by knights and defended by its people during the crusades. Grand baroque architecture, ancient ruins, a sweeping coastline and the treasure of St John’s Co-Cathedral will inspire you. There is a wealth of sights including palaces, forts, gardens, museums and monuments. Explore over 50 stately rooms in the Casa Rocca Piccola; discover authentic weaponry from the Great Siege of 1565 and marvel over artefacts in the National Museum of Archaeology. Celebrate the Maltese Carnival of masked balls, parades and flamboyant costumes. Join in on the ancient customs of Valletta with hymns, dancing and five annual feasts. Take a boat out to the neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino to peacefully unwind on the uninhabited beaches.

Why Go?
Taking a trip to Valletta is to travel back in time. The ancient forts, cobbled streets and grand palaces speak of an era steeped in myths, legends, battles and glory. In spring the festival scene explodes onto the streets with ticker tape parades, elaborate masks and extravagant costumes.

When To Go?

Valletta is directly affected by the Mediterranean climate and is considered a year-round destination for travel. High summer may be too hot for most visitors with average temperatures exceeding 29°C. Choose instead the cooler, quieter months of September and October - flights and accommodation are usually cheaper during this time.

How To Get There?
Valletta is served by Malta International Airport (MLA) located 8km (5 miles) from the city centre.Direct flights are available from several UK destinations. Shuttle buses operate from the terminal building, taking passengers to the entrance of Valletta as many of the ancient streets allow for pedestrians only. Flying to Malta from the UK takes around 3.5 hours.

Must See
Valletta is alive during the festival season. Wander through the crowds of painted faces, sparkling confetti, elaborate fancy dress and street performers. Watch as the parade marches through the town as dancers, musicians and singers pass by on decorated floats. Celebrate long into the night as restaurants, stalls and vendors stay up until sunrise. The carnival atmosphere is a remarkable experience and one to treasure from a trip to Valletta.
